provide a command or an API to change certificate store password

Properly managing SSL/TLS certificates become more and more important. Specifically all the certificates and certificates authorities which are stored in the *SYSTEM certificate store.
This certificate store is protected by a password, that can be reset from DCM interface.
This RFE is about providing an API or a command, which would allow resetting the certificate store password in a batch mode, from tools which are able to manage passwords, such as CyberArk vault.


Use Case:

Automatic certificate store passwords reset and store in a vault to become compliant with rules which imply a regular change (90 days) for any shared id password.

    IBM will use this request as input to planning but no commitment is made or implied. This request will be updated in the future if IBM implements it. IBM will use votes and comments from others in the community to help prioritize this request.
