After reading through it, there are a few things that are unclear for me.

I'm trying to build a net-to-net vpn. Part of the directions involve
creating a user cert. What is the purpose for that?

In the "Migrating Certificates" section, it refers to "cert.pem" and
"key.pem". Is that referring to the host certificates?

Any reason the ca-cert-nickname and ca-cert-common-name can't be the
same? I was just using the hostname.
