On Ubuntu, the charon process is confined by Apparmor and its profile
[*] doesn't let it read files from random locations on the filesystem.
If you put the various .pem under their dedicated directories under
/etc/ipsec.d/ Apparmor will let charon access them.


*: see /etc/apparmor.d/usr.lib.ipsec.charon
