dds_security key location

I was looking at the security examples provided by the installation and have a question regarding location of the keys. In the example for the location of the keys in the QOS file looks like this <value>file:../../../dds_security/cert/ecdsa01/identities/ecdsa01Peer01Key.pem</value>. I am looking at the file: part in this case. Is it possible to use url: or something similar? Or will file: work with a remote location? I am looking to use something like an escrow service or a key manager which hands out the keys.

Sorry, while the format of the configuration allows for the future use of remote storage of certtificates and such as via an URL, currently Connext Secure only supports local file storage of keys.
