AD CS Policy Module Processing

Updated: July 8, 2009

Applies To: Windows Server 2008 R2

The policy module contains the set of rules governing issuance, renewal, and revocation of certificates. This policy is created from hard-coded values, registry settings, and, if you are using an enterprise certification authority (CA), certificate templates. The policy module determines whether a certificate request is approved, denied, or marked as pending for an administrator to approve or deny. Problems detected with a policy module can cause a CA to fail to start or to cease functioning.
