These files contain the private parts of the host keys used to
generate the digital signature.
They should be owned by root, readable only by root, and not
accessible to others.
Since they are readable only by root,
must be set-uid root if host-based authentication is used.
|If these files exist they are assumed to contain public certificate information corresponding with the private keys above.|
