I have upgraded UIM to the latest patch 8.5.3 following the UIM Vulnerability Patch 1 instructions. After this the wasp doesn't start any more.

This is observed in the wasp.log, just before wasp going into failure

The reason for this failure can be bad formatting of the .pem file created during the upgrade to 8.5.3 process when copying the .pem file to the different servers.
•  Review the integrity of the .pem file.
•  Open the .pem file in editor in the primary hub where it was created
•  Copy the content and paste it to other servers with editor (notepad++)
