Managing EFS Certificates tutorials

  • EFS use public key cryptography to allow the encryption of files.

  • The keys are obtained from the userís EFS certificate.

  • Users can make encrypted files accessible to other users by making EFS certificates available to another user.

  • To do this, they can export the certificate and private key to a Personal Information Exchange (PFX) file, which are password-protected during the export process.

  • The password then is required to import the certificate into another userís certificate store.

  • Note:- Because there is only one instance of the key, it is vulnerable to hard-disk failure or data corruption. Always take backups of Personal Certificates and keep it in safe custody.
