That looks like an LDAP question - i.e. not something that Mono.Security
does (e.g. replace "server certificate" by "string" and the main
question remains without involving mscorlib.dll ;-)

Mono.Security can deal with them (certs and private keys) but won't pull
or push them to LDAP servers.

Parts of Mono.Security.dll are documented (under "Mono Libraries") in

Otherwise you have the "absolute documentation" in the source code of
both the assembly and the tools that it. More than 90% of the code
exists because it was needed somewhere (mostly the security tools, a bit
of the BCL too). Be warned that most of the code are low-level API
(compared to the framework).
