Re: [mosquitto-dev] Mosquitto private key encryption

Hi Milan,

You can use encrypted private keys with the broker just fine, you'll
just have to enter the password when you start the broker. I believe
this is the same behaviour as e.g. apache.

I can't help thinking that an option to have the private key password
stored in the config is identical from a security point of view to
having an unencrypted private key.
