Q. Is it true that the standard edition of Windows Server 2008 R2 public key infrastructure (PKI) can issue v2 and v3 certificates?

A. Yes. Before Server 2008 R2, only Enterprise and Datacenter editions could issue v2 and v3 certificates, but Server 2008 R2 Standard Edition Active Directory Certificate Services can issue v2 and v3 certificates. This is great for small business server organizations. The standard edition also now supports auto enrollment and key archival.
