Info: Understanding Certificate, Private Key and Certificate Chain Downloads

Info: 

Director has two possible events that are logged when a user downloads a certificate. These events have additional data to indicate whether the private key and certificate chain were also downloaded with the certificate. This information is useful for future audits to determine who downloaded a private key and when it occurred. The chain information can be used to determine if users are not downloading the chain along with the certificate.
