OIDC certificate cache removed

After a certificate was updated on the ADFS server, Cognos Analytics had to be restarted before it would accept the certificate because certificate authority certs last so long that is no need to update the intermediate and root certificates in the CA trust store.

There are many reasons why the certificate may need to be updated, including a compromised private key. At this point, the certificate would need to be rekeyed and signed by the certificate authority as the rekey would be part way through the certificate's life cycle; their authority certificates would be the same.

In our opinion, the required restart shows Cognos is not checking for a new certificate until a restart and caches the old cert, which could be dangerous. Most other products in the market can handle a rekey of the certificate without any need for a restart, or other interaction, provided the roots are still trusted
