Server key does not appear to be valid [SOLVED]



  • Hi all,

    From OpenSSL 1.0 change log:

    Make PKCS#8 the default write format for private keys, replacing the traditional format. This form is standardised, more secure and doesn't include an implicit MD5 dependency. [Steve Henson]

    However, the pfSense 1.2.3 needs the private key file in the previous, traditional format.

    Solution:

    openssl rsa -in server.key -out server.key

    That`s it.
