Certificate key authentication supported for SFTP log transfers

Customer would like to use an SSL Public Key option for the configured SFTP connection in the 'Settings--Support--Logs--Log Collection--Log Collection Configuration--Log Destination' Log Collection Configuration page. There is an SSL/TLS certification option for HTTP, however customer is required to use SFTP for this logging. Today there is no key authentication supported in log transfer for SFTP server like there is for the HTTP server. Adding in this certificate as an option for SFTP transfers like there is for HTTP (SSL//TLS) today would satisfy customer's security requirements.
