At least 4KB to cover a 2048 X.509 public key, but ideally 10 KB or more. To remove the ACL complexity, just having it accessible only by the user (token or password based fetch) would be suitable.Do not quite understand how that would work or what you mean.
I've just realized that I think the functionality I'm looking for is already available. I want the same system that is used for storing passwords. Consider the following trace:
$ ldapsearch -h freeipa -b uid=tester,cn=users,cn=portal,dc=nebiogrid,dc=org -Y GSSAPI -LLL -d 0 -T ~/.ldapresults/
SASL/GSSAPI authentication started
SASL username: ijsto...@nebiogrid.org
SASL SSF: 56
SASL data security layer installed.
cn: test test
[aside: I'd love a tip on how to get rid of the non-LDIF SASL headers]
The userpassword (hash) is stored in base-64 format and is only accessible by me because I have permissions to access this. Some other user doing the same query would not get the userPassword attribute. Even better, I can use the "-tt" option to write the base64-decoded content to a file.
The parts of the puzzle that I'd have to work out are:
1. are there objectClass schemas that have fields that would be suitable for a set of common private keys (rsa1, rsa2, dsa, gpg, pgp, and x509)?
2. if not, instructions on how to set up such a schema (basically with exactly the set of attributes above), with the fields being base64 (binary?)
3. what do I have to do to get the behavior that only certain parties can read a particular attribute?
4. any way to get ldapsearch to write out particular attributes to particular files?
