wpa_supplicant error logs
Description of problem:
After update to Fedora 26, my connection to private network though TLS does not work anymore. wpa_supplicant is throwing errors shown in the attachment.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
OpenSSL 1.1.0f-fips 25 May 2017
Attempt to make a TLS connection though NetworkManager Gnome applet and look at wpa_supplicant logs when establishing connection.
Connection fails with error TLS: Failed to load private key
Connection should work like it did in Fedora 25.
I found a similar bug on Archlinux bug tracker: https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/54233
It seems that the Arch Linux maintainers fixed the issue already and released the new version for wpa_supplicant. Would be great to have this fix on Fedora also.
I was able to work around this bug by removing passphrase from my private key. This is not a very good solution tough and I think this issue should be resolved.
