Below are the Federal Common Policy root certificate and the intermediate Entrust Managed Services certificates needed to trust HSPD-12/PIV smart card certificates. Normally Windows and MacOS computers come with Federal Common Policy installed. Further Windows computers will automatically download the required intermediate Entrust Managed Services certificates if needed.
