  • Obtaining Server certificate to secure RDP

    Hello,

    I just read the very good tutorial Securing RDP/Terminal Services Communications made by Jason Boche (http://www.petri.com/securing_rdp_communications.htm).

    In this tutorial I read the following fragment;
    You also have configured the server to receive remote desktop connections. In our example, we have obtained a certificate and installed it already on server.contoso.com.
    And this is my question: how do you request a certificate for a Windows 2003 server? And where do you create it?
    I want to install a server certificate for each Win 2003 server to secure RDC connections.

    I already requested in IIS 6.0 certificates for HTTPS websites so I know how this works.

    Thanx in advance!

    Greetings,

    Kevin

      Is this certificate server a part of the Windows component Certificate Services? I haven't installed these Certificate Services yet.

        Yes. If you follow that guide you wil be able to create your own certificates.
