Being able to retrieve an existing key means being able to read it which
isn't granted by default.

It depends on how you want to grant this access: to this one user, to
all users, to groups, etc.

The attribute you want is ipaProtectedOperation;read_keys but use it
very carefully because you are granting read access to keys.
