The private key is returned as an unencrypted PEM encoded PKCS#8 private key. If a key with the specified name already exists, Amazon EC2 returns an error. The key pair returned to you works only in the Region you're using when you create the key pair. To create a key pair that works in all Regions, use ImportKeyPair.
