Browser and Cert

What browser and what certificate authority are you using?

Re: how to get user cert on macbook

I have tried firefox and safari. We are trying to do this against an enterprise CA. I have read further into this and it seems like we may have to put up a standalone CA for non windows machines is this correct?

Let's see

Let me make sure I'm telling you the right thing...

Are you using EAP-TLS on a Microsoft IAS server? Are you Generating a CSR to a text file and attempting to request a certificate by pasting in the CSR into http:/certsrv? Do you even get to login to the cert server with your domain credentials? Do you click on "Request A Cert" and make sure that "Client Authentication - User" is in the template selection? We have people that do this on Safari, on MACs all the time, and it works. Did you consider contacting Microsoft with the scripting error?

Re: how to get user cert on macbook

we are using eap-tls with a micrsoft IAS server. On the mac i browse to the page for our certsrv and i login with my domain credentials. From there i click on request certificate. I can select user certificate or i can select advanced certificate request. I select advanced and paste my certificate details in and i get the scripting error.

cjoseph are you saying that my request should work on a enterprise certificate authority

I am saying that you are doing all the right things. Microsoft needs to explain the scripting error.

cjoseph,

Is there any way you can post screen shots of the steps you would take when requesting on a mac from an enterprise CA?

I can send you a redacted instruction PDF on how to do this, if you would like.

cjoseph,

That would be great. The thing i want to see is when you actually request the cert i want to see what the page looks like from the macs perspective. When requesting from a mac are you requesting a user or computer cert?
