Actually, if scepclient is built there is some legacy code in starter
that checks if ipsec.secrets exists and if it does not creates the file
and uses scepclient to generate a key and self-signed certificate [1].
My guess is that nobody actually uses this functionality so I suppose it
would be safe to remove that code.
