      Description

      To allow the vcl program to run as a user other than root we need to set the location of where the Private Encryption Key is stored.

      Currently it is set by the following variable.

      our $MN_PRIVATE_ENCRYPTION_KEY_FILE_PATH = "/root/.vcl/$FQDN.key";

      It would be better to have the location of where the key is stored set in the vcld.conf file, so it can be configured by the administrator and writes to the location can be granted to the user being used to run the vcld daemon.
