in the active directory federation services configuration wizard RRS feed

  • Question

  • In the ADFS active directory federation services configuration wizard it is asking for a SSL Certificate. There is nothing in the drop down and another option is to click the import option. How do I enter the certificate and how is it created? Located in the "Specify Service Properties"  in the ADFS Configuration wizard. Please help. Thanks

  • You need an SSL certificate to install ADFS. you can use a certificate issues by your internal CA if you are not planning to open the ADFS service externally. If you want at one point to enable your user to authenticate when they are connected externally (through a proxy or WAP - Web Application Proxy), then you'll need a public SSL certificate.

  • Once you have the certificate, import it in the local computer store. Make sure you also have the private key associated to it. Then it will show up in the drop down menu.

  • Do you have a .pfx file?

    That's the certificate format that includes a private key.

    Double-click the file, go through the wizard and select "Local - Personal".

    It should then appear in the drop down.
