Windows logon with certificate in the certificate store RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    We have a PKI and we don't want to purchase external devices to store certificate securely. However we would like the user to use 2 factors authentication with a certificate . 

    By putting a a certificate we issued in the OS certificate store (that will be stored in the registry), therefore the certificate is stored on the machine.

    I was wondering if it was possible for a user to authentication at logon with the AD password and the certificate on the machine? In summary is the GINA able to check the certificate in the registry at logon?
