The Administrator's Guide is intended for corporate information systems administrators and Webmasters who are responsible for the installation, configuration, operation, administration, and customization of Microsoft® Certificate Server. Individuals will be able to perform these tasks with just the information provided in this guide without a deeper understanding of public-key technology and issues related to establishing a Certificate Authority, provided that they follow a plan devised by someone who understands these issues. Background material useful to planners is provided in Certificate Server Concepts.
For explanations of acronyms and other technical terms, see Glossary of Terms.
