Overview of Intune Certificates

Microsoft Intune is a cloud-based service that focuses on mobile device management (MDM) and mobile application management (MAM). IT admins can upload MSIX app packages to Intune and to deploy applications to end users. If an MSIX package is signed with a custom certificate, the certificate must be installed on the end user's PC for the application to work correctly.

Using certificates for authentication helps end users access various applications without the need to enter usernames or passwords. Certificates provide seamless access through the following phases:

  • Authentication Phase: The user’s authenticity is checked to confirm the user is who they claim to be

  • Authorization Phase: The user is subjected to conditions for which a determination is made on whether the user should be given access.
