    First.
    Thanks for a great software.
    But…

    I have a problem when exporting hosts/users private key.
    The field is there to do so but it is blocked.
    I really need to be able to protect a certificate containing private keys with a password.
    The equipment I intend to export to require them to be password protected.
    Sorry if I bring up an old subject but this is a must due to regulations in most organisations in some way connetcted to legislation and military.
    They have to follow that, and so do I.

    I have found some discussion here (from 2006) which suggest that it might be implemented in future releases.
    I really hope that is the case and my square for selecting them to be password protected in the web gui is blocked for a temporary reason.

    I use zeroshell v3.0.0.0 installed on my harddrive from latest ZeroShell-3.0.0.iso.

    Untill that is solved, can I do something in the shell on my zeroshell box to get them out password protected?
    Preferably in p12 format.

    Will it be implented?
    Former discussions in this forum suggested that user certs could be protected with there user password.
    Good idea.
    When it comes to host certs I ‘m not sure, but there will propably have to be a field of some sort to fill in.

    Hope I’m not annouying anyone by bringing up an old subject.

    Yours.

    Hi,
    before clicking on export you just need to check “Protected by password”.
    The password used will be the one of the user.

    Yes I found it, but that works only for user certs.
    That solves half my problem.
    I need to password protect host certs too.

    I intend to use both user and host certs on a product that has to follow national security rules with zeroshell as a netcenter.
    They demand password protection and there is no way to pass it.

    So is there any way to do that?
    Maybe by using openssl (as I guess that what’s being used) in the command shell?

    Still a great thing thou, zeroshell.

    Yours. /HÃ¥kan
