recover CA passphrase

Post by k18 » Fri Aug 28, 2020 3:18 pm

I lost my CA pass phrase (CA = on separate pc). What can I do to recover it? Can somebody direct me to the right documentation?

That would be the piece of paper on which you wrote down the password ..

Found the paper in my brain :-) I'll follow your kind advise from now on.

For the record, It is not possible to "recover" your CA Password.

If it were possible then it would be insecure ..

I have a little black book 8-)
