It's all related to the most profitable configuration for the company.

Most companies out there, especially the big ones, know pretty well what they are doing. Typically, a ratio of one as senior as possible resource for 20 juniors that don't have a clue. Shield this up with meticulously written contracts and a good team of lawyers and you end up making more profits than doing the right thing.

Maybe. But don't forget certs are only used to authenticate you. The authorization is made on the server and the authorization part is what is really meant by credentials:

"A credential is an attestation of qualification, competence, or authority issued to an individual by a third party with a relevant or de facto authority or assumed competence to do so."

Certs only authenticate you, making sure who you are. Perhaps wrongly, we sometime use "credentials" in a more permissive way, extending to authentication.

That's OK. People mix auth and auth all the time (authentication and authorization).

Well, I guess it also depends on "how well" the cube is when you start.

Is there anybody that knows the longest possible sequence of move one would have to do in order to resolve the cube? In order words: what is the worse configuration to start with when you try to resolve it.

I think our robot could spend more than ~3 seconds resolving it with worse configurations.

Now: Let's design a robot to mix the cube for the other robot and have a data set, not just one run.

your credentials to the server. This is not he case wih a cert auth,

More precisely said: your private key is never sent to the server. That's why it is called "private".

Because even when using a client cert to auth, your credentials are indeed sent to the server. Otherwise, how could the server auth you?
