Didn't find a group specifically for EFS...please advise correct group for
EFS questions.

We have an AD 2003 native forest/domain not currently set up for domain-wide
EFS.  However we all (users) have issued 1024 bit PKI certificates that can
be seen on the Published Certificate tab in ADUC.  The certificates are also
on Smart Cards that everyone has and can use to log on to domain PCs with.

Is it possible to now implement a domain-wide EFS process utilizing these
already issued certficates?  If so can someone point me to some specific
guidance on using third party certificates?  TIA.

Regards,

John
