I am not sure on the password used to create certificates. I would like to have a tool to check for it


Run the following command:
openssl s_server -cert FTALNX851-1.crt -key FTLNX851-1.key

Tool asks for a password :-

Enter pass phrase for FTALNX851-1.key:

As soon as you have typed the correct password the following message is displayed :-

Typing a wrong password the following message is displayed :-
