Certificate for AMT provisioning with SCCM


Hi all,

Am trying to explore the vPro capabilities with SCCM in a lab environment with Intel AMT clients of version 3.2.1.

Client PC info:

Model : Dell Optiplex 755

Bios version : A11

Also am planning to purchase one of the certificate rather than a setting up an internal CA.

So before I proceed any further i have few queries,

Is there a recommended certificate(among Verisgn, GoDaddy, COMODO, Starfield) that i should purchase to make vpro work with SCCM(i mean, anything SCCM specific ?) ?

My lab setup is in an isolated network and my domain is not hosted on any public web server.

I read in one of the intel's blog that when a certificate is purchased the certificate vendor does a WHOIS lookup to verify the domain.

Am a bit confused about this !!

Is it possible to purchase a certificate even if my domain in not hosted and to make vPro work with SCCM ?

Please advice.

Thanks in Advance

You will need to set up a CA in order to use SCCM. SCCM requires TLS authentication for vPro clients, meaning that you will need a CA to issue certificates to you vPro clients when they are provisioned.

In addition, you will also want to purchase a remote configuration certificate. You can find information on how to get one in the remote configuration FAQ:

Look under the heading "What resources or guidance are available for acquiring one of the core external certificates?"
