Description Eve Kovacs 2003-10-21 19:27:25 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.2.1) Gecko/20030225

Description of problem:
I tried to generate a CSR using the Makefile in /usr/share/ssl/certs
When it gets to the point where it tries to generate a key, I get the following
/usr/bin/openssl req -new -key gate.key -out gate.csr
Enter pass phrase for gate.key:
unable to load Private Key
25009:error:06065064:digital envelope routines:EVP_DecryptFinal:bad
25009:error:0906A065:PEM routines:PEM_do_header:bad decrypt:pem_lib.c:421:
make: *** [gate.csr] Error 1

I tried this on a RH 8 system also, with the same result.
The version of opensssl that is installed is:


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.cd /usr/share/ssl/certs
2.make xxx.csr
3.enter pass phrases as propmpted.

Actual Results:  It crashes when you enter the pass phrase for the xxx.key.

Expected Results:  Should have generated xxx.csr
