Installing and distributing certificates RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • I have a question on how to distribute a certificate.  I have a self-signed cer file and pvk file which i combined into a pfx file.  Our service is installed on separate servers in a domain and the certificate needs to be bound to the port on the server since i'm using a webHttpBinding.

    my question is is it ok to include the pfx file on the installation media?  it needs to be installed on the server but i guess i'm confused as to how this is secure if anyone can get the file then couldn't anyone decrypt the messages?

    Thanks for any help.
