smtpd.key pass phrase? LAMP FC6
 
Hi

I have followed your tutorial on howtoforge.com regarding Installing A LAMP System With Fedora Core 6.

All is well until step 10, postfix. when I got to this step:
openssl genrsa -des3 -rand /etc/hosts -out smtpd.key 1024
It asked for a pass phrase. See output below:

[root@patrol ssl]# openssl genrsa -des3 -rand /etc/hosts -out smtpd.key 1024
282 semi-random bytes loaded
Generating RSA private key, 1024 bit long modulus
.........................................++++++
.................................................. ........++++++
e is 65537 (0x10001)
Enter pass phrase for smtpd.key:

What do I enter?

Thanks - Brent

Thanks
