Course Introduction Hello, and welcome to Pluralsight. My name's Orin Thomas and this is my "Windows Server 2012 R2 Certificate Services" course. If you want to know a little more about me, you can go to my website, orinthomas. com, or you can follow me on Twitter, @orinthomas. This course contains the following modules. First module is a PKI Primer. The next module is about the components that make up a Windows Server 2012 R2 Certificate Services deployment. Then, we'll discuss certificate revocation, certificate revocation lists, and certificate revocation list distribution points. We'll talk about offline root certification authority. We'll talk about certificate templates. We'll talk about certificate enrollment, auto-enrollment, renewal, and approval. We'll talk about online certificate status protocol. We'll talk about certificate authority security. We'll talk about key archiving and recovery. And, the final module is on data recovery agent and disaster recovery. The idea behind this course is it provides good, functional, practical coverage of certificate services in Windows Server 2012 R2. I hope you get a lot out of the course and I will see you in the next module.
