In section 7.16. SSL the command to generate a private key is the same as the command to generate a self-signed certificate. Is this a typo?

I believe the command for generating the private key should be something like openssl genrsa -out server.key 2048 (or openssl genpkey -algorithm RSA -out server.key -pkeyopt rsa_keygen_bits:2048).

Just thought I would mention it. Thanks.
