CSS + SSL - unable to create RSA association

Hello,

I am having troubles creating an RSA association on our CSS11506.

Here are the steps I've tried:

1.) I take the original "Digital ID Class 3 - VeriSign Server OnSite" certificate provided to us and move to the CSS via FTP. I have used the openssl verify process to make sure it was a good cert.

****

CSS-EC1# copy ssl ftp FTPSRV import websrv-gr.pem PEM "thepassword"

Connecting (/)

Completed successfully.

(also at this step - I have tried this with and without a passphrase with the same results)

****

OpenSSL verify:

C:\OpenSSL\bin>openssl verify -verbose -CAfile .\PEM\verisign.pem websrv-gr.pem

websrv-gr.pem: OK

****

2.) I then create a certificate association:

CSS-EC1(config)# ssl associate cert WWW websrv-gr.pem

3.) I then attempt to create and RSA association:

CSS-EC1(config)# ssl associate rsakey WWW-RSA websrv-gr.pem

%% File does not contain an RSA key

What can I do to get rid of this error? Does the certificate we recieved from Verisign need to be chained with the Verisign Intermediate certificate?

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance...

Regards,

Ben

Re: CSS + SSL - unable to create RSA association

Step 1 looks ok

Step 2 looks ok

But step 3 is strange: the command in step 3 is to associate a private key to a name. But you are not using your private key file but certificate file to associate it to a keyname.

Re: CSS + SSL - unable to create RSA association

Hi

we have a customer with a similar problem,

CSS11501(config)# ssl associate rsakey vimageprivkey privkeyvimages.pem

Error: %% File does not contain an RSA key

The openssl utility has been used to extract the rsakey from the PKCS12 file.

They have used this method numerous times before without this error.

RSA key below:-

Bag Attributes

localKeyID: 31 31 36 33 30 38 34 35 35 32 32 33 30

friendlyName: vimages 2006 certificate

the key is encrypted.

If you use the wrong password when you import it , you get the error message that you see.

Try to decrypt the key with openssl to make sure you have the right password.
