Option to relocate ../data/cacert.pem outside Domino data

We added several certificates into cacert.pem when using NotesHTTPrequest call in LotusScript. After a update or upgrade, this file is renewed. Please introduce a notes.ini parameter to relocate this file to ( example ) /local/cacerts/cacert.pem

    Using the certstore instead of cacerts would be a better solution. Does this also inlcude the JVM cacerts in Domino? Saidly we have 2 cacerts in Domino: 1 for LotusScript calls and 1 for JVM.

    Having trusted roots in a file in data directory isn't desirable at all from security point and management point of view.

    Domino 12.0.2 introduces a new back-end for root certificates which are stored either in the Domino directory or certstore.nsf.

    Some new functionality is already move to this new trust store for LibCurl functionality (which is also used by the Lotus Script class).

    Functionality already using the new trusted root store:

    - CertMgr URL Health Check (12.0.2+)

    - MailScan/ICAP (12.0.2+)

    - ODIC configuration by default uses cacerts.pem unless you explicitly specify a trusted root coming from certstore (14.0+)

    - Domino 14.0 AutoUpdate (14.0+)

    cerstore.nsf also contains usage categories for roots since Domino 12.0.2.

    IMHO remaining callers like Lotus Script HTTP class should be also moved over to this new model which would make cacerts.pem obsolete.

    The remaining question for Notes clients would be how to manage the certificates.

    Probably pushing trusted roots to names.nsf locally via security policies would be an existing mechanism.

    So this is for outbound calls ? Instead of working with files on the servers disk, we would like to handle TLS certificates in the certificate manager. Would this work for you?
