Same or different account public key for multiple certifcates?


#1

Hi,

Are most people in favor of using a single account or multiple accounts for multiple certificates?

As a follow up can multiple accounts be created with the same email address?


#2

I’m not aware of a particular preference either way. I’d be inclined to have a single account for each controlling entity (individual or organization), but I don’t really know of strong reasons for or against any particular scheme.

Yes.


#3

Personally, I go with one account per machine / server. One is enough IMO and one per machine ensures that keys aren’t shared that don’t have to be shared.


#4

Is an email address on an account publicly available?


#5

Not intentionally, no. However a mistake a little while back leaked some email addresses to other subscribers receiving an email.


#6

In case it helps, I asked a similar question in the past and the suggestion was to use a single account.

Wonder if there is a pruning process in place to remove account not utilized for a certain period of time.
