The 'key' in Deltacloud is specified by 'keyname' parameter during
'create_instance' operation. The naming of this parameter is a bit
ambiguous because the 'key id' is actually require here.

To use this 'key' you first need to 'create' one under /api/keys
collection or use one of the already created id's.

The PEM is returned in response of the 'key' creation. Then you can
use this 'key' when creating a new instance. The using that PEM you
should be able to connected to the instance.

Hope that helps :-)
