Biggest painpoints from a security perspective are the very long runtime of certificates and having no certificate revocation.

The runtime does not need to be as short as for a webserver but with such long runtimes it is quite likely an algorithm will become insecure in this timeframe and there should be no need for it as there is a refreshment of the certificates already available.

The missing revocation prevents from disallowing connect at all, communication is quite limited for a system without endpoint or a user being removed, but being able to also revoke the certificate would be a much cleaner state.

New day, new community hero!
