The NAP certification authority (CA) server is an essential component of the IPsec enforcement and no enforcement designs. The NAP CA receives certificate requests from Health Registration Authority (HRA) that are made on behalf of NAP client computers.
Before you install and configure a NAP CA, be sure that you have reviewed the following conceptual topics in the Network Access Protection Design Guide:
Planning the Placement of a NAP CA Server
Capacity Planning for NAP CAs
Appendix A: NAP Requirements
After you have reviewed these topics, complete the tasks in Checklist: Deploy a NAP CA.
