Establishing a Chain of Trust for UWP Applications

About this task

If you want to deploy a Universal Windows Platform (UWP) application to your devices, you must ensure that the application has an established chain of trust. You can establish this chain of trust by using a Third-Party CA or using one of the following methods if the Root certificate is self-signed.

To link a self-signed Root certificate:


  • Use a Certificates profile configuration.
  • Deploy the Root certificate to the device through the Group Policies and Domain Controller.
  • Direct the device user to manually install the Root certificate.

What to do next

You can now create an application catalog rule.
