Question from the Bouncy Castle development list:

At present we use the Windows certificate store as:

var store = new X509Store(StoreName.My, StoreLocation.LocalMachine);
store.Open(OpenFlags.OpenExistingOnly | OpenFlags.ReadOnly);
var certs = store.Certificates.Find(X509FindType.FindBySubjectName, subjectName,
true);

We’d like to switch to something that’s more cross platform (esp Linux compatible). What are some good design patterns for a secure, cross platform certificate storage? We need to store RSA and EC certificates as well as their respective private keys (if they exist in the password protected PFX).
