Keystore https:

Hi Experts,

We have on our IBM iSeries Server (as/400), some https: connections, that make use of the default kesystore:
/QIBM/USERDATA/ICSS/CERT/SERVER/DEFAULT.KDB

Now we have several environments Development, test1, test2, acceptation, production1 etc.
Is is advisable to make a keystore for each environment with each their own authorization?)

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Yes.  Best security practice is to segregate keystores for each environment, since they can have significantly different security requirements and responsible persons.

For example, dev team may own dev environment keys, QA team may own QA keys, and security team may own prod environment keys.
