Deployment Architecture

System not hashing sslPassword server.conf

Hello All

I am creating an app that will have all the SSL certs and pem files in it. As part of the app I have the following server.conf file and web.conf file.

[sslConfig]
enableSplunkdSSL = 1
allowSslCompression = false
useClientSSLCompression = false
useSplunkdClientSSLCompression = false
sslVersions = tls1.1, tls1.2
sslVersionsForClient = tls1.1, tls1.2
serverCert = $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/apps/mentor_ssl_config/mycerts/key_server_cert.pem
sslRootCAPath = $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/apps/mentor_ssl_config/mycerts/digicert_ca_certs.pem
sslPassword = ez2019Test



[settings]
privKeyPath = $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/apps/mentor_ssl_config/mycerts/wildcard.wv.mentorg.com.key
serverCert = $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/apps/mentor_ssl_config/mycerts/server_inter_root_certs.pem
sslPassword = ez2019Test
splunkdConnectionTimeout = 1400
tools.sessions.timeout = 180

The issue I am having is that the .conf files are not encrypting the password into a hash format and thus the system is failing to check into the deployment server with the following error:

07-25-2019 11:46:33.227 -0700 ERROR SSLCommon - Can't read key file /opt/splunkforwarder/etc/apps/mentor_ssl_config/mycerts/key_server_cert.pem errno=101077092 error:06065064:digital envelope routines:EVP_DecryptFinal_ex:bad decrypt.
07-25-2019 11:46:33.227 -0700 ERROR HTTPClient - Couldn't initialize SSL Context for HTTPClient in Deployment Client

So the question is why isn't it encrypting the SSLPassword for the server.conf file or the web.conf file in my app?

thanks

Ok figured it out. /opt/splunkforwarder/etc/system/local/server.conf had sslPassword defined. This caused the app in /opt/splunkforwarder/etc/apps/ssl_config/local/server.conf not to be encrypted. If you ask me that seems like a bug even though etc/system/local takes precedence over etc/apps/ssl_config/local. Splunk should still encrypt the file.

well it took care of the server.conf but the web.conf sslPassword is still unencrypted 😞
