Subject Re: How to re-use CloudStack's keystore?

I think the keystoreManager provides a generic interface. I’d think that certificate re-use
is probably not a good idea, might be worth using a different cert for different purposes.
One compromise will affect only one part of the system?

Is there any documentation on how one can reuse CloudStack’s default java keystore keys
(private and public) and any recommendation on security consideration? If not, can anyone
share something on this, how it is created/updated, who uses it currently and how one can
(re)use the keys for x509 based authentication, encryption and decryption.


Anyone has any idea how to re-use as I don’t want to duplicate x509 crypto usage within
the codebase?
