      The Windows Server® 2008 Foundation Network provides instructions for planning and deploying the core components required for a fully functioning network and a new Active Directory® domain in a new forest.

      This guide explains how to build upon the foundation network by deploying server certificates for computers that are running Network Policy Server (NPS), Routing and Remote Access (RRA) service, or both.

      Server certificates are required when you deploy certificate-based authentication methods with Extensible Authentication Protocol (EAP) and Protected EAP (PEAP) for network access authentication.

      Deploying server certificates with Active Directory Certificate Services (AD CS) for EAP and PEAP certificate-based authentication methods provides the following benefits:

      • Binding the identity of the NPS or RRA server to a private key

      • A cost-efficient and secure method for automatically enrolling certificates to domain member NPS and RRA servers

      • An efficient method for managing certificates and certification authorities

      • Security provided by certificate-based authentication

      • The ability to expand the use of certificates for additional purposes

  • System Requirements
