DPM supports two types of certificates to successfully encrypt data at a protection group level: self-signed certificates and certificates imported from a certificate authority (CA). Click the link in the following procedure to get information about how to install and remove trusted certificates.

SSL server certificates for Internet Information Services (IIS) are stored in the "Personal" ("My") certificate store of the "computer account" ("localMachine"). The "Certificates" snap-in of the Microsoft Management Console (mmc.exe) must be used to manage these certificates. The certificate management window (accessible from "Internet Properties" / "Content" / "Certificates" or from "Control Panel" / "Users and Passwords" / "Advanced" / "Certificates") cannot be used.
