MORE INFORMATION

CAs validate the identity and entitlement of an applicant. In this process, the applicant is issued a digital certificate. You can use digital certificates to prove the identity of a remote person or a remote resource.

To verify that Microsoft customers have access to trusted CAs, Microsoft uses WebTrust for Certificate Authorities or an equivalent third-party audit tool. Additionally, Microsoft uses other technical requirements to maintain a list of trusted CAs.

How Windows updates root certificates

Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, and Windows Vista automatically check the list of trusted CAs on the Windows Update Web site. Then, Windows installs root certificates after the certificates are validated by an application of the user.

For more information about how Windows updates root certificates in Windows Vista, visit the following Web site:

http://technet2.microsoft.com/WindowsVista/en/library/bd925e62-8367-43b6-b2d5-a98de4ba6dbe1033.mspx?mfr=true (http://technet2.microsoft.com/WindowsVista/en/library/bd925e62-8367-43b6-b2d5-a98de4ba6dbe1033.mspx?mfr=true)

For more information about how Windows updates root certificates in Windows Server 2003, visit the following Web site:

http://www.microsoft.com/technet/prodtechnol/windowsserver2003/technologies/security/ws03mngd/04_s3cer.mspx (http://www.microsoft.com/technet/prodtechnol/windowsserver2003/technologies/security/ws03mngd/04_s3cer.mspx)

For more information about how Windows updates root certificates in Windows XP, visit the following Web site:

http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb457160.aspx (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb457160.aspx)

For more information about how Windows updates root certificates in Windows Server 2003, visit the following Web site:

http://www.microsoft.com/technet/prodtechnol/windowsserver2003/technologies/security/ws03mngd/04_s3cer.mspx (http://www.microsoft.com/technet/prodtechnol/windowsserver2003/technologies/security/ws03mngd/04_s3cer.mspx)

Note In Windows Server 2003, the issuer list cannot be larger than 0x3000. When you update root certificates, the list of trusted CAs increases significantly and may become too long. When this occurs, the list is truncated. This condition may cause problems with authorization, and it may cause channel event ID 36885.
