|Applies To||RSA Product Set: SecurID Access|
When uploading your SSL private key through the Administration Console (My Account > Company Settings > Company Information), as described in the RSA SecurID Access documentation on how to Configure Company Settings and Certificates, the following error displays:
|Cause||The private key was encrypted by a password/passphrase when created.|
|Resolution||The IDR requires that the private key be uploaded without password protection. |
You can create a temporary un-encrypted version of the protected private key using the openssl toolkit:
# openssl rsa -in <private_encrypted>.key -out <private_unencrypted>.key
After uploading the un-encrypted key via the Administration Console, it should then be deleted from your local system.
|Notes||You can check if a key has been password protected:|
openssl rsa -text -noout -in <private_unencrypted>.key
Note that you are not prompted for a pass phrase.
openssl rsa -text -noout -in <private_encrypted>.key
Note that you are prompted for a passphrase.
