4882: The security permissions for Certificate Services changed

On this page

This event documents a change to the access control list of the Certification Authority itself.  The ACL governs who can perform CA level operations documented below.

You can reach the ACL by opening the Properties dialog of the CA in the Certification Authority MMC snap-in.

This event event is only logged if "Change CA security settings" is enabled on the Audit tab of the CA's properties in Certificate Services MMC snap-in and of course if the Certificate Services audit subcategory is enabled with auditpol.
