i'm creating them with these three commands:

matthew at biochem:~/ca$ openssl req -new -keyout <filename_key.pem> -out
<filename_req.pem> -days 360 -config openssl.cnf

matthew at biochem:~/ca$ cat <filename_key.pem> <filename_req.pem> >

matthew at biochem:~/ca$ openssl ca -out <filename_cert.pem> -config
openssl2.cnf -infiles <filname.pem>
