Description Hubert Kario 2017-10-03 16:12:19 UTC
Description of problem:
pk12util specifies cipher names that do not work (e.g. RC5), the names of ciphers are not correct (most of the PBES1 ciphers) and the type of ciphers is incorrect (e.g. 3DES and RC4 are not PBES2).

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. inspect pk12util man page
2. try using pk12util to export keys or certificates with the ciphers specified in the man page
3. inspect DER encoding to verify if the tool followed parameters

Actual results:
pk12util does not follow man page description

Expected results:
pk12util behaves the way it is documented in the man page
