Every time I add a cert to a web server (to support https://) I have
to be around and type the passphrase at reboot time.
I have tried two kinds of certs:
(1) cd /usr/share/ssl/certs; make testcert
(2) make server.pem
In case (2) the resultant cert is RSA and it doesn't need a password.
I have to extract the 2 components manually from the .pem file and
save them in separate files server.crt and server.key
In case (1) the resultant cert is DSA and needs a password.
It seems that (1) is more secure, but it requires the password to be
Is there a way to prevent the interactive password typing?
