Just FYI, Aladdin refused, REFUSED to sell me 4 keys when I attempted
to purchase them through CDW because I did have or want to have an
Aladdin PKI Console software license. Nevermind that I didn't actually
need their Console software or that Red Hat has a PKI management

In my opinion, avoid Aladdin even if you can manage to get keys through
a tertiary party.
