[AG-TECH] Life of 'service' cert

Password less certificates don't use proxies, so proxy lifetime doesn't
matter. However, certificate validity does (it's generally 12 months).

As an aside, service certificates are not intended to be used by users as
identity certificates, there may well be parts of the authorization policy
that specifically exclude services from some operations (like Enter).
