Subject Re: Use of qpid-config with SSL
Date Fri, 05 Aug 2016 07:32:11 GMT
Hi Jeff,

The password it is asking for is to decrypt the private key. However,
looking at your qpidd configuration, I'm not sure you really need the
private key to be specified. It looks like the broker is configured to use
SSL only with Server authentication. Therefore the client should need only
the public key. Have you tried to use the qpid-config without the --ssl-key

Should you really need the private key, I don't think you can pass the
password as parameter in qpid-config, but you can use PEM file without
encryption. In such case it would not ask for password, but of course the
private key will not be protected by the password and encryption.
