Page page 25, Creating the TLS Certificate and Key
First paragraph of section, the openssl req command

The cert is created for domain accounting.tls with the command
“openssl req -nodes -new -x509 -keyout accounting.key -out accounting.crt \
-subj "/CN=accounting.tls”

Then later the certificate is used for an ingress accessed with a different domain name

“kubectl create ingress accounting-ingress \
--rule="*=accounting-service:80, \
tls=accounting-secret" -n t75”

For better consistency the certificate should be created with domain name
“openssl req -nodes -new -x509 -keyout accounting.key -out accounting.crt \
-subj "/”
