How to Install Certificates for BizTalk Server

To help secure data transfer on BizTalk Server, you must add the appropriate certificate to the appropriate certificate store, and associate the certificates with the appropriate BizTalk artifacts. This topic describes how to display the Certificates Management Console interface for the Local Computer and Current User certificate stores, and how to install the appropriate certificate in the appropriate store.

The certificates shown in the following table are used to help sign, verify the signature for, encrypt, and decrypt messages.

Certificate Usage Certificate Type Certificate Store

Signature (outbound)

Own private key (.pfx)

Current User\
Personal store of each BizTalk server that hosts a MIME/SMIME encoder pipeline as each host instance service account

Signature verification (inbound)

Trading partner's public key (.cer)

Local computer\Other People store of each BizTalk server that hosts a MIME/SMIME decoder pipeline as each host instance service account

Encryption (outbound)

Trading partner's public key (.cer)

Local computer\Other People store of each BizTalk server that hosts a MIME/SMIME encoder pipeline

Decryption (inbound)

Own private key (.pfx)

Current User\Personal store of each BizTalk server that hosts a MIME/SMIME decoder pipeline as each host instance service account

  8. Click the Close button on the Standalone Snap-in dialog box.

  9. Click the OK button on the Add or Remove Snap-in dialog box.

  1. Request a private-public key pair for digital signatures from the certification authority (CA) for BizTalk Server to use.

  2. Send to the partner the public key for encryption.

  3. In BizTalk Server, log on as the service account for the host instance running the handler that will receive messages from the partner. Install the BizTalk Server private key certificate for decrypting messages in the personal store for the service account.
