The CertificateDsc module is a part of the Windows PowerShell Desired State Configuration (DSC) Resource Kit, which is a collection of DSC Resources. This module includes DSC resources that simplify administration of certificates on a Windows Server, with simple declarative language.

The CertificateDsc module contains the following resources:

  • CertificateExport: Used to export a certificate from a Windows certificate store.
  • CertificateImport: Used to import a certificate into a Windows certificate store.
  • CertReq: Used to request a new certificate from an certificate authority.
  • PfxImport: Used to import a PFX certificate into a Windows certificate store.
  • WaitForCertificateServices: Used to wait for a Active Directory Certificate Services Certificate Authority to become available.

This project has adopted this code of conduct.
