Changing the urban code agent cert validity from 20 years to 2 years

When UCD agent is installed an entry 'ucd-agent-id' is created in agent.keystore, by default it comes with 20 years of validity but we want this entry to be valid for a period of 2 years, so that it can be rotated. By following this we can mitigate the security risk of having the same keystore entry for 20 years.

we want the UCD agent binaries to be modified so that this validity can be configurable.

we found the code in AgentKeystoreHandler class file where validity can be modified.
