Summary0000089: MIME Types for PKI files
DescriptionI believe that libmagic should support MIME type detection for PKI files, like ".key", ".crt" and so on:

application/pkcs8 .p8 .key
application/pkcs10 .p10 .csr
application/pkix-cert .cer
application/pkix-crl .crl
application/pkcs7-mime .p7c
application/x-x509-ca-cert .crt .der
application/x-x509-user-cert .crt
application/x-pkcs7-crl .crl
application/x-pem-file .pem
application/x-pkcs12 .p12 .pfx
application/x-pkcs7-certificates .p7b .spc
application/x-pkcs7-certreqresp .p7r

Please see full list here:
Steps To ReproduceCurrently some of certificates are determined as "plain/text":

➜ file --mime-type ca.crt
ca.crt: text/plain
➜ file ca.crt
ca.crt: PEM certificate

TagsNo tags attached.

Can you try writing a patch for this? I am not sure if we can cover most of the cases because we don't know enough about what the files contain (and file does not pay attention to extensions).
