When running the TSSXTEND job to create a new Top Secret VSAM security file to hold certificates:

1. Does the Top Secret VSAM security file hold all certificates both public and private?

2. Is there a way to tell how full the VSAM security file is and if it is running out of space?

3. If a certificate gets deleted, does it free up space and able to reuse it?
