OpenVPN problem

OpenVPN problem
« on: March 08, 2020, 05:03:41 PM »
Newly configurated OpenVPN. Appearently I've performed all steps. In server manager panel there's no error concerning certificates.
In log file I can find:
Quote
2020-03-08 16:56:36.766208500 neither stdin nor stderr are a tty device and you have neither a controlling tty nor systemd - can't ask for 'Enter Private Key Password:'.  If you used --daemon, you need to use --askpass to make passphrase-protected keys work, and you can not use --auth-nocache.

and I'm not able to connect with clients.

Yes that'll be the issue :-)

Do you use phpki or another method to create certificates?

I am doing a major update to phpki and I would like to find another user for opinion!

Let us know (ask for a login to Rocket.Chat as well.....)

Yes, BUT, wait, just sorting what happens to old ver certs if you upgrade, John is trying to sort it, I think keeping a roof over his head and food on the table is interfering :-)
and sorry adding, the version we are playing with is in Johns testing repo, not updated to CVS yet

That is the RIGHT answer :-)

OK, I know your version is probably a bit flawed.... the dates are wrong in the panel & other stuff.

I have done a patched version of v0.82 but not released it yet as we are testing it. It fixes a few basic issues like the dates and some formatting. The updated version is in smetest phpki-0.82-20

Please test it - Terry has and it seems OK but note I give NO guarantees that it won't break things so make a backup of your certs in /opt/phpki/phpki-store before upgrading, or better still install on a test machine. Install the original, create a few certs then upgrade.

However, it doesn't fix the current encryption level which is not high.

I have cloned the radicand repo which in itself was a copy of the 0.83 code with fixes and have updated it

https://github.com/reetp/phpki

It is STILL a work in progress.

The big issue is upgrading. The new 0.83 version will use SHA512 which is far stronger than the SHA1 used in 0.82 which is a busted flush.

However, it means you need to generate a new CA, and then new certificates.

So to upgrade to 0.83 means we need to backup the old certs and reinstall.

I have a personal build of 0.83+ if you want to try it - let me know.

Also, if you want to test this (please!!!!) ask me for a Rocket.Chat account and you can talk to me and Terry directly as we build and test it. No coding required - just some enthusiasm....

Hope you jump in and help - we really need it!
