obscureCert: Obscure the CILogon Client Certificate

Description

Obscures the x509 certificate that CILogon installs, effectively making future interactions with the DataONE services public/anonymous. This function simple renames an existing certificate file to a known location, allowing 'public' operations. Note, when the client certificate is obscured via the renaming, you will not be able to create objects in DataONE, or utilize any other methods that require authentication.
