Obtaining a Provisioning Certificate for Intel® vPro Platforms using OpenSSL Tools

Version 3

    Deploying Intel vPro platforms using Remote Configuration (sometimes known as PKI-CH

    or Zero Touch Configuration) requires a digital provisioning certificate to be

    procured. For those unfamiliar with procuring digital certificates, the process and tools

    can appear complicated. This document provides a step-by-step procedure for using

    OpenSSL tools to generate a certificate signing request, submit the request and receive the signed

    certificate from a commercial Certificate Authority and verify the suitability of the

    certificate for provisioning Intel vPro platforms
