**BUG** macOS IPSec Roadwarrior v156 Cert Password Issue


Edit I was using some symbols in my password and this seemed to cause the issue. By creating a password that only contained [a-zA-Z] I was able to import the certificate into macOS kerychain and it accepted the password.

Seems there is a bug with the handling of special characters in the certificate password???

IPFire Dev v156

Setting up IPSec roadwarrior config using wiki articles:

When I get to the part where I import the user certificate on macOS 11, importing the .p12 file fails with incorrect password error.

I have generated a certificate 2 times now, the second time being extra careful to ensure the password of the certificate is correct, but macOS keeps saying the password is incorrect.
