I'm also curious about this.  We have an AG node in our department and 
we want to make it mostly self-service.  How do we best handle 
certificates is my question.  Currently, we're experimenting with using 
an anonymous certificate for all users to use (and a single machine 
login).  This seems to work but the documentation warns that not all 
venues may accept anonymous certificates.  How safe is it to use 
anonymous certificates?
