WSA credential encryption certificate

Hello

I'm having trouble installing a credential encryption certificate under Network/Authentication on a WSA S170 with version 7.5.0-833. After clicking on "Upload Files" I alwas get the message: "Error  — Key cannot be parsed. Please confirm the file is a valid key".

The certificate was generated same as the https mangement certificate, which I installed over SSH. It's PEM base64 encoded and has a RSA 2048bit key.

I confirmed the validity of the key with OpenSSL.

Does anybody has a solution for this problem?

The problem is that newer (>1) OpenSSL versions use PKCS#8 PEM formatted keys in some commands. One can convert the PKCS#8 key to RSA with following command:

openssl rsa -in pkcs8.key -out rsa.key
