Perform the following steps if you are using a Windows environment to export the key:

  1. On the computer that has the certificate, launch MMC.exe and add the Certificates Snap-In for the certificate store that contains the certificate.
  2. Select the certificate and choose the option to export it.
  3. Follow the instructions in the Certificate Export wizard, selecting to export the private key. Be sure to check these options:
    • Include all certificates in the certification path if possible.
    • Export all extended properties.
  4. Set a temporary password for encrypting the private key.
  5. Save the Personal Information Exchange (PFX) file and transfer it to the computer that is hosting the Security Token Service.
  6. On the computer that is hosting the Security Token Service, launch MMC.exe and add the Certificates Snap-In for the computer account of the local computer.
  7. In the Personal certificate store, import the saved certificate and enter the temporary password.
    • Do not mark the private key as exportable. This prevents the key from being copied from your computer.
    • Select the Include all extended properties option.
    Continue installing the Security Token Service.
