  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • When importing a key (with a password alias) into an
    application domain using Crypto Tools -> Import Crypto Object,
    it fails with:
    
        crypto-import : '79000-pwd' is an unknown password alias
        crypto-import : crypto-import failed
    
    
    However, if the password alias is already created in the
    default domain, crypto-import succeeds.
    

Local fix

  • Create the same password alias in the default domain before
    importing the key in an application domain.
    

Problem summary

  • Crypto Import used to check default domain for password alias,
    now it checks the current domain.
    

Problem conclusion

Temporary fix
