Asmita,

You might want to look at the following Python sample for how to generate
the signature:
https://github.com/kdamage/IndividualCode/blob/master/CloudStack%20API%20Signing%20Class/SignedAPICall.py

I noticed in your openssl command, you only used the "keypair=..." part of
the query string. I think you need to include the entire query string, such
as "command=listAccounts&keypair=...".
