Standalone CA

  • Doesn't require Active Directory
  • Supports S/MIME (secure email), Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) and Transport Layer Security (TLS)
  • Works with external networks (extranets)
  • Holds requests for certificates in a Pending Queue for later (manual) approval by a CA administrator and thus does not immediately grant certificates
  • Requires a person requesting a certificate to supply all identifying information as well as the type of desired certificate
  • Doesn't use certificate templates
