cert without passsword?

Post by Bytechanger » Wed Mar 13, 2019 12:42 pm

I ´ve createt some certificates for my openvn-server a long time ago.

Today I wantet to create a new client-certificate without password.
So I set source ./vars and then build-key test1
But it creates my a certificate with password?!

Is there any change on update openvpn?
What´s goint wrong?

Because you clearly have not many clients I would recommend you use EasyRSA 3:

I have no idea what you have done to break EasyRSA 2, "build-key test1" will build a cert/key pair for client test1 without a password as defined by the OpenSSL parameter -nodes
