  Deploying a VPN with PKI
Subject:   if anyone gets stuck in the same way...

I'm testing the described setup on Mandrake 10.
First of all I had to download openssl-0.9.7d from the cooker cos the default was 0.9.7c.


Then using the openssl.cnf provided by this article I kept getting this ugly error on every certificate signing attempt:


variable lookup failed for CA_vpn::default_md
15411:error:02001002:system library:fopen:No such file or directory:bss_file.c:104:fopen('/home/vpn/ca/index.txt.attr','rb')
15411:error:2006D080:BIO routines:BIO_new_file:no such file:bss_file.c:107:
15411:error:0E064072:configuration file routines:CONF_load:no such file:conf_def.c:197:
15411:error:0E06D06C:configuration file routines:NCONF_get_string:no value:conf_lib.c:329:group=CA_vpn name=default_md


Adding:
default_md = md5
to openssl.cnf fixes the problem.


Hope it helps.
Bye.
