I was thinking about we should store this kind of information on the keystone.
However, I changed my mind after checking keystone API.
The keystone api is very generic, so we can't provider application
specific helper method and validations on that.
The form of certificate is different between applications.
so my current idea is to have a independent resource for certificates
for each applications.

> Original Basic Model that was proposed in summit
> * Certificate parameters introduced as part of VIP resource.
> * This model is for basic config and there will be a model introduced in future for detailed use case.
> * Each certificate is created for one and only one VIP.
> * Certificate params not stored in DB and sent directly to loadbalancer.
> * In case of failures, there is no way to restart the operation from details stored in DB.
> Revised New Model
> * Certificate parameters will be part of an independent certificate resource. A first-class citizen handled by LBaaS plugin.
> * It is a forwarding looking model and aligns with AWS for uploading server certificates.
> * A certificate can be reused in many VIPs.
> * Certificate params stored in DB.
> * In case of failures, parameters stored in DB will be used to restore the system.
