The certificate hike by the client eventually loads the trusted 
certificate, then attempt to load the iff file with the same name. You 
can use a different name, but there must be a link from the trusted name 
to whatever you choose. The crypto iffpar option is for the client 
itself serving as a server for dependent clients. Ordinarily, it 
attempts to load the iff file with its own name, but that can be changed 
by the iffpar option as well. There are many combinations of links and 
options, but the best is to use the original keys generated by the 
ntp-keygen program and install links as required.
