EX16-MB-000020 - Exchange servers must use approved DoD certificates.

Information

Server certificates are required for many security features in Exchange; without them, the server cannot engage in many forms of secure communication.

Failure to implement valid certificates makes it virtually impossible to secure Exchange's communications.

NOTE: Nessus has provided the target output to assist in reviewing the benchmark to ensure target compliance.

Solution

Remove the non-DoD certificate and import the correct DoD certificates.
