A new feature is available in Windows Server 2012 and Windows 8 that allows you to protect exported PFX files (those in PKCS#12) to Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS) accounts. The feature is available only if you have a Windows Server 2012 domain controller deployed in your network. The TechNet Wiki article Certificate PFX Export and Import using AD DS Account Protection describes the feature further.
