In principle, NTP Autokey can use certificates generated by OpenSSL or
by other certificate authorities (CA); however, there are some very
minor details with these certificates, including the sequence number and
use of the X.500 extension fields. Ideally, the CA would run the Autokey
protocol and serve as the TH itself, which would be consistent with the
TC model. Absent that, the choice is to use the certificates generated
by the ntp-keygen program.
