Overview

The Certificate Store is where Windows stores private and public certificates of various types ranging from machine certificates to trusted root certificates. C3 Inventory allows reporting on the Windows Certificate store with two steps.

  1. Invocation of the Certificate Store Probe
  2. Enable the Certificates Analysis

Invocation of the Certificate Store Probe

There is no native method through WMI or the registry to pull significant certificate store information and as such we have to utilize a probe to obtain this information.

The probe is: Fixlet: Invoke - Certificate Store Probe - Windows

This should be actioned to run an unlimited number of times with a delay of however long you find the age of the data to be acceptable (typically once a day is fine).

Enable the Certificates Analysis

Enable the Analysis: Certificates - Windows to begin collecting data on machines that have run the configuration probe.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
