CertReq.exe is a command-line program that is installed as part of Certificate Services Management Tools.
Certreq.exe is used for:
• Create new certificate requests. This includes the generation of key material that corresponds to the certificate request.
• Apply policies to a certificate request. This applies to CA certificates where various constraints are required. Since you cannot include certificate policies in the certificate request that is created by a CA, you have to apply the policy to the CA certificate request explicitly.
• Submit certificate requests to a certification authority. This feature also works with remote certification authorities, so that you can submit a request via the network to a remote CA.
• Retrieve certificates from a CA. Based on the certificate request ID, you can retrieve any certificate from a CA and save it to a file.
• Accept (and install) certificates or responses. This command is intended to accept a certificate or a response that contains a certificate. Once you have created a certificate request with certreq.exe, it remains in a pending state on your computer until you install the certificate that corresponds to the request.
• Sign certificate requests. In the case where the certificate template administrator has set the number of certificate enrollment agent signatures to a value greater than zero, you can sign certificate requests with this option.
