CDF certificate should be improved to have long term valid certificate

Recently, certificate expiry risk has been detected to all CDF based on K8S's certificate management.

ex.) is one of support documentation for SMA CDF.

The customer has to renew the CDF certificate according to online help for each CDF version.

However, the renewal procedure generates a 1-year valid certificate again.
Customer will be required annual renewal task.
It is very troublesome and unfriendly for our customer even if it's the default behavior of bundled K8S.

So, our all CDF should be improved to generate long term certificate (maybe also CA cert of K8S) by easy step (or installation).
