Hi All,

Hi,
 
Certificates in Exchange server is a digitally signed statement that’s commonly used for validation and to sheltered in sequence on open set of connections. Certificates can be used to encrypt the communication flow. A certificate is compelling only for the time period particular within it.
 
By the use of a certificate, the hosts no longer need to maintain a set of passwords. Certificates are issued to establish a certification hierarchy. It is also use to create more secure computing environment. Certificates can also be used by these endpoints to substantiate themselves adjacent to each other. Hope the information above could help you in your problem.
 
Sincerely,

In any organization, considering encryption and digital certificates are important. In Exchange Server 2016, it is configured to use TLS or Transport Layer Security by default to encrypt communication among internal Exchange servers and among Exchange services on the local server. The SSL or Secure Sockets Layer protocol is now being replaced by TLS as the protocol used to encrypt data sent among computer systems.

Digital certificates are electronic files that function like an online password to authenticate the identity of a computer or a user. Digital certificates are used to create encrypted channel used for client communications. A certificate is a digital statement issued by a CA or Certification Authority that guarantees for the identity of the certificate holder and allows the parties to communicate securely by means of encryption.

The following are provided by digital certificates:

  • * Encryption – helps in protecting the data that is exchanged against tampering and theft.
  • * Authentication – this verifies the identity of the certificate holder like people, web sites as well as devices like routers if they are who are what they claim to be. Basically, the verification is a one-way process where the source verifies the identity of the target.
