Creating a Secure Store Target application with access for all users

I am currently working on a SharePoint application which access users Exchange calendars via web services. In order to access the calendars we need to provide credentials and we use a service account which has access to all calendars.

Instead of storing the logon information of the service account in a list or web.config we want to store this in Secure Store which is ideal for storing credentials (big surprise there). We also want to create the Secure Store target application in code with an installer and not using Central Admin.
