[syslog-ng] Mutual Authentication and Encryption With Rsyslog

unable to get local issuer certificate -> syslog-ng does not find a
matching CA to check the cert.

"openssl verify -CAfile 876f1e28.0 -verbose client.key"

Instead execute:
openssl verify -CApath foocadir -verbose client.pem
//use CApath to see if openssl really finds the ca using the hash, and
verify the certificate not the key.
