Certificates should not be shared to all, but only to specific programs
we want to. They are kept in root accessible area for security measure.

But programs should not be allowed to run as root or have access to root
accessible area. Usually for isolating, programs are run in separate UID and
So they cannot access only root accessibly dirs.

It may be better to make separate Unix Group and User for certificate
purpose. Make a directory with that group and user. Copy the private key and
public certificates from /etc/letsencrypt/... to it. Make the directory group
permissions rx. Put the necessary programs/daemons process user to this Group.
