Add a trusted root certification authority using Group Policy


Adding trusted root certificates to an image can help users navigate sites without prompting them to answer security questions.  But sometimes these certificates expire or you just forget to add them to the image.  Using Group Policy it’s easy to add a certificate.

To add a trusted root certification authority using Group Policy

1. Open/Create/Edit a Group Policy object.

2. Navigate to;  Computer Configuration/Windows Settings/Security Settings/Public Key Policies/Trusted Root Certification Authorities

3. On the Action menu, point to All Tasks, and then click Import.
This starts the Certificate Import Wizard, which guides you through the process of importing a root certificate and installing it as a trusted root certification authority for this GPO.
