CERTUTIL – Windows CMD Command

Dump and display certification authority (CA) configuration information, configure Certificate Services, back up and restore CA components, verify certificates, key pairs or certificate chains.

Certutil is sensitive to the order of command-line parameters.

Certutil replaces the File Checksum Integrity Verifier (FCIV) found in earlier versions of Windows.

There are some documentation inconsistencies between the command-line help (Certutil -?) and the various MSDN help pages.
e.g. -encodehex is completely missing from the command-line help.
The -decode option might not always restore spaces – see the forum thread.
