Re: [suse-security] Problems with postfix and TLS
Hi,

key

First make your request, then sign it with your (self-signed) CA, split up
cert and keyfile, remove the password from the key and your done. It does
not work as the private key could not be read, see logfile, because of the
password.
If the key is in the request file, seperate it and remove the password:
openssl rsa -in keyfile.pem -out key_without_pass.pem
you can cat it then >> back into the cert-file if you wish.

Ciao,
Dieter
