CertStore Parameter (Get-Certificate Cmdlet)

The name of the certificate store for the client certificate.


Get-Certificate -CertStore string


The CertStoreType parameter specifies the type of the certificate store specified by CertStore. If the store is password protected, specify the password in CertStorePassword.

CertStore is used in conjunction with the Subject parameter in order to specify client certificates. If CertStore has a value, and Subject has been set, a search for a certificate is initiated during logon. Please refer to the Subject parameter for details.

Designations of certificate stores are platform-dependent.

The following are designations of the most common User and Machine certificate stores in Windows:

MYA certificate store holding personal certificates with their associated private keys.
CACertifying authority certificates.
ROOTRoot certificates.
SPCSoftware publisher certificates.

When the certificate store type is PFXFile, this parameter must be set to the name of the file.
