Building a test lab : The basics Part 1 RootCA

Part of building a functional test lab is being able to deal with cattle and not pets. With that in mode I'm writing a series about the script necessary to build a production like lab for testing DSC, and be able to to tear it down and rebuild it with little effort.

Part 1 is about bootstrapping DSC for the Root CA. and doing so without using plaintext passwords.

I would welcome some feedback on both my methods and writing style.
