> Despite the algorithm names indicating compatibility with OpenSSL, the current password-based
encryption processors cannot decrypt data that was encrypted with OpenSSL external to NiFi.

> I will create a new OpenSSLPBEEncryptor implementation, a new EncryptionMethod, and wire
the logic in EncryptContent to select the correct encryptor. 
> I have a more in-depth explanation of the issue at,
but the fix is done in a sandbox and will be moved into NiFi by morning 12/03/15.
