Severity: 3-Major


When you run qkview -c, you are prompted for a password: Enter pass phrase for ./Common_d/certificate_key_d/:Common:f5_api_com.key_64768_1:


qkview -c cannot be run because /bin/printcertmods requires a valid passphrase to finish.


An OpenSSL key exists that is encrypted with a passphrase.


Unless you can enter passphrases from the command line, assuming there are a small number of such keys and the passphrase is available, there is no workaround.

Fix Information

The fix simply avoids the issue and skips computing the modulus for any encrypted key.
