Create AP actor keys with Go's built-in libraries
Open, HighPublic

Description

Overview

Right now we rely on system calls to openssl to generate keypairs for ActivityPub actors. This makes app distribution more difficult, so we should move away from this.

Implementation

Use Go's built-in libraries to generate the keypairs.

@matt: I tried this early on and had too much trouble getting Mastodon to accept the requests, which is why it's built this way. But there should be a way to fix this.
