[PKIPASSW = string 1...64]

The encryption password of the private key in the local certificate base. There are two ways to specify the password, by either:

  • Value: the value assigned to the parameter is used directly as a password
  • Reference to a file: the value assigned to the parameter is the name of a file, the first record of which contains the password. As such, the file name must be prefixed with an #, PKIPASSW=#myfile for example, where the password is specified in the myfile file. The first file record must contain the password in plain format

The password is not recorded in the local certificate database. It is strongly recommended that you use the same password for all private keys. The same password must be declared in the configuration, so that the monitor can access the private keys.
