How to Create and Deploy PFX Certificate Profiles in Configuration Manager

HOWWith Microsoft System Center 2012 Configuration Manager Service Pack 2 (ConfigMgr 2012 SP2) and System Center R2 Configuration Manager Service Pack 1 (ConfigMgr 2012 R2 SP1), we now have the ability to provision personal information exchange (.pfx) files to user’s devices. PFX files can be used to generate user-specific certificates to support encrypted data exchange, and with Configuration Manager, these imported PFX certificates can be deployed to multiple iOS, Android, and Windows 10 devices to support user-based PKI communication.

If you’d like to see an example of this, Microsoft’s own Karan Rustagi (Support Escalation Engineer) has a great blog post that walks you through the process of deploying a PFX certificate profile to an IPAD running iOS 8.3. If you haven’t seen it already, you can check out his post here:
