Reading In PFX-Certificate

by Oct 29, 2014

All PowerShell versions

When you use Get-PfxCertificate, you can read in PFX certificate files and use the certificate to sign scripts. However, the cmdlet will always interactively ask for the certificate password.

Here is some logic that enables you to submit the password by script:

$PathToPfxFile = 'C:\temp\test.pfx'
$PFXPassword = 'test'

Add-Type -AssemblyName System.Security
$cert = New-Object System.Security.Cryptography.X509Certificates.X509Certificate2
$cert.Import($PathToPfxFile, $PFXPassword, 'Exportable')
