      Description

      The cacerts file contains builtin root CA certs in OpenJDK. It's now in JKS format and there are 2 problems:

      1. JKS is an obsolete keystore type.
      2. It's protected by a weak and well-known password "changeit".

      We intend to migrate the file into a password-less PKCS12 file so that it can be continuously loaded with a null store password.
