Automatic certificate request settings

Certificate enrollment is the process of requesting, receiving, and installing a certificate. By using automatic certificate settings in public key policies, you can have computers that are associated with a Group Policy object (GPO) automatically enroll for certificates. This can save you the step of explicitly enrolling for computer-related certificates for each computer.

After you establish an automatic certificate request, the actual certificate requests occur the next time the computers associated with the GPO log on to the network.

For more information, see Automatic certificate request policy and Public Key Policies overview.
