Creating users for local security checks without the OpenVAS LSC Credentials Manager

First, you need a key with certificate:

$ ssh-keygen -t rsa -f ~/.ssh/id_rsa_sshovas -C
"OpenVAS-Local-Security-Checks-Key"
$ openssl pkcs8 -topk8 -v2 des3 -in ~/.ssh/id_rsa_sshovas -out sshovas_rsa.p8

Note: The comment (here: "OpenVAS-Local-Security-Checks-Key") must not contain spaces. Currently, you need a rsa pkcs8 key for OpenVAS local security checks.
