Use the Configuration Manager 2007 ISV Proxy Certificate Registration or Renewal dialog box to register or renew the certificate for the ISV Proxy.

Independent software vendor (ISV) solutions might have specific requirements. Register or renew an ISV Proxy certificate only after you consult the appropriate ISV documentation.

In general, the ISV Proxy certificate and the related Configuration Manager 2007 infrastructure allow an ISV to develop solutions for client platforms that are not directly supported by Configuration Manager 2007. Detailed information regarding the ISV Proxy certificate and its use in client communications can be found in the System Center Configuration Manager 2007 Software Development Kit (SDK).
