Fix the ID vault so it doesn't use a separate ID file or capture that ID file so it isn't lost all the time

Time and time again, I encounter environments where no one has a copy of the ID file used to create the ID Vault. This is because during the process of creating the vault, there was no warning of the importance of the ID file created at the time and it is stored on the admin's computer and forgotten. When this happens, the only workaround is to start over and create a new ID vault and export the user IDs from the old vault and import them into the new one. Not a trivial process.

This needs to be resolved. Either use an existing ID file, like a certifier ID or a server ID;
or store the Vault ID somewhere that it can be easily retained;
or modify the process so it doesn't require a separate ID file at all.

The current process that manages the ID Vault with its own ID file is an administrative headache ready for a remedy.
