Using Host-Based EAP
Obtaining CA and User Certificates
EAP-TLS and PEAP authentication require the use of certificates. EAP-TLS requires both a Certificate
Authority (CA) certificate and a user certificate while PEAP requires only a CA certificate. After you
import the necessary certificates, you should not have to repeat this procedure until the certificates expire
(at a time that is predetermined by the certificate server).
If you have not yet obtained a CA certificate (for EAP-TLS or PEAP) and a user certificate (for
EAP-TLS), follow the steps below.
Obtain the certificate file(s) (*.cer or *.crt) from your system administrator.
Establish an ActiveSync connection between your laptop or PC and your Windows CE device.
Open Windows Explorer on your laptop or PC.
Copy the certificate file(s) and paste them into a folder under My Computer > Mobile Device.
Follow the steps in the
