Description

I created several keys/certificates and noticed, that

./build-key

is leaving tempfiles behind. After the invocation:

./build-key kiess

I'm seeing these files:

-rw------- 1 root root 1708 Jul 8 13:30 kiess.key
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 1045 Jul 8 13:30 kiess.csr
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 3 Jul 8 13:30 serial
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 5405 Jul 8 13:30 kiess.crt
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 21 Jul 8 13:30 index.txt.attr
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 1018 Jul 8 13:30 index.txt
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 5405 Jul 8 13:30 08.pem

For some reason, the file 08.pem is identical to the "kiess.crt":

# diff 08.pem kiess.crt; echo $?
0

this is just how openssl ca works - 08.pem is because that is the key with serial number 08.
