Configure Central Certificate Store using DSC

Hi All,

Is there any specific module available to configure a central certificate store in a windows 2012 server using DSC?
Can I use WindowsFeature resource to do this? After configuring the CCS , how should I proceed to add wildcard certificates for applications using DSC?


No, not yet. Not in terms of configuring it or adding certificates.

Well, you should be able to use the WindowsFeature resource to install it (the feature name is ‘Web-CertProvider’). Configuring it probably needs a new resource, which would wrap around the WebAdministration module’s -WebCentralCertProvider cmdlets. The certificates themselves are just PFX files on a shared drive, so you could potentially manage some of that with the built-in File resource.
