RE: error decoding PKCS 8 key
The SFL does not read PEM files, it requires a binary ASN.1 encoded file; I
have written a utility (to be released soon) to read PKCS12 files and
reformat the private keys for use by the CTIL. We have no MIME logic at all
in the SFL, not even a base64 decoder.

Subject: error decoding PKCS 8 key
Can someone tell me why the attached key (pk8key.pem) doesn't work with
sm_free3. It is having problems decoding it, saying error wrong tag. This
key was created by OpenSSL. The password is password and it has to be base64
decoded. pk8key.pem.txt has the "BEGIN ENCRYPTED PRIVATE KEY" taken out but
still has to be base64 decoded.
