Last I heard 1 mill creds is for the bracelet to access to VIP area which is where the CE store is. VIP doesn't give you access to CE store. CE should get free bracelet.

To the best of my knowledge they are different.

In the Beta I distinctly recall there being a security vendor (or a name like that, maybe authenticator vendor) and it said that I need to have an authenticator on my account to access that vendor.

Later on (in the fleet station I think), I came across the same security vendor as well as a different vendor that quite plainly told me that I need to have the CE to access it.

I know it's not very concrete data to go on, but that's my experience. I think I saw another post about this earlier in the day and they mentioned that as far as they knew it was 2 different vendors as well.

Hope it helps!

This is correct, buying the VIP Bracelet only gives you access to the VIP lounge and not the collectors edition store (which is located in the VIP lounge). If you try to access the Collectors Edition vendor without a collectors edition retail code attached to your account, you will be given an error message along the lines of "You need the Collectors Edition to use this vendor".

Bioware have said multiple times that this will be a unique vendor and access will not be given to standard edition players (through credits or other means). I presume this means the authenticator vendor will be different; however I can imagine the items sold would be similar.
Remember on your journey, lost wanderer; no matter what a waste one has made of one's life, it is ever possible to find some path to redemption, however partial.

Further more the CE store will be updated with new items as the game goes on so even a year or 3 from now you will still be able to buy new cool stuff from there as a CE holder.... giving the SWTOR CE version a LOT more 'throughput' than any of the WoW CE's which only give a one-time in game benefit (a non-combat pet.... not that great tbh).
Where did they say they would update the CE store?

The security key vendor is not in the VIP lounge so one can assume it doesn't have the equivelent gear as the vendors in the VIP lounge.

You answered your own question.

Only people who ordered the Collectors Edition get access to both stores.

Has this been confirmed or denied?? I don't think I'll be very happy about that.
