Domain Controller Certificates

server certA certificate that a domain controller uses to identify itself to other computers to enable smart card logon functionality to the network. It also includes the public key which is required in order for web browsers to set up a secure encrypted connection with the server. Any domain controller that can be used as a logon server to assign domain privileges must have a domain controller certificate in order to facilitate smart card logon across the network. For example, if you have 3 domain controllers handling user logons, all 3 must have a unique domain controller certificate that corresponds to that machine name.
