    RSA generate keys without password

    Hi, I'm generating rsa keys using openssl library.

    Code:
    rsa = RSA_generate_key(bits, RSA_F4, NULL, NULL);
    While generating (and loading key from file), app wants me to enter PEM pass phrase.
    Can i generate keys and load them without pass phrase?
    Thanks.

    The documentation says that RSA_generate_key is deprecated, no? So use RSA_generate_key_ex. Maybe you're not providing sufficient data in your code itself. I'd be surprised if you couldn't Google a solution, this is not C++ specific.
