Description:
------------
I have tested this against php5.3.5 with OpenSSL 1.0.0c (arch linux) vs an older server running php5.2.14 with OpenSSL 0.9.8e (centos linux).


Test script:
---------------
$opts = array('config'=>'openssl.cnf',
              'encrypt_key'=>true,
              'private_key_type'=>OPENSSL_KEYTYPE_RSA,
              'digest_alg'=>'sha256',
              'private_key_bits'=>2048,
              'x509_extensions'=>'usr_cert');

$handle = openssl_pkey_new($opts);
openssl_pkey_export($handle, $privatekey, sha1($_SERVER['REMOTE_ADDR']), $opts);
echo $privatekey;


Expected result:
----------------
CentOS example output
-----BEGIN RSA PRIVATE KEY-----
Proc-Type: 4,ENCRYPTED
DEK-Info: DES-EDE3-CBC,C93B386451093918

There is no different code in php to deal with this function.

If two versions of openssl give you two different results then it is a openssl 
problem, not php.

Also I would like you to test using the same PHP versions vs two openssl, then we 
can begin to discuss a possible issue. Be sure to use the latest versions 
available at php.net, not the centos (or any other distro) you use.

I have verified this under the following conditions.

Arch Linux x86_64 installation

This configuration returns a password protected private key
Apache 2.2 [./configure]
OpenSSL 0.9.8q [./config --openssldir=/usr/local/openssl-0.9.8q --shared]
PHP 5.3.5 [./configure --with-apxs2=/usr/local/apache2/bin/apxs --disable-cli --with-openssl=/usr/local/openssl-0.9.8q]

This configuration however does not return a password protected key
Apache 2.2 [./configure]
OpenSSL 0.9.8q [./config --openssldir=/usr/local/openssl-1.0.0c --shared]
PHP 5.3.5 [./configure --with-apxs2=/usr/local/apache2/bin/apxs --disable-cli --with-openssl=/usr/local/openssl-1.0.0c]

Anything else you might find pertinent?

Since I have not heard anything else about this I did some digging to try and identify the problem.

I have been adding some warning output in the 'openssl-1.0.0c/crypto/pem/pem_pkey.c' file after reviewing the the 'php-5.3.5/ext/openssl/openssl.c' file and noticing and focusing on the calls to the OpenSSL shared objects for 'PEM_write_bio_PrivateKey()'.

When adding the warning output flags in the 'OpenSSL-1.0.0c/crypt/pem/pem_pkey.c' the password argument would always display as '(null)'.

Correct me if I am looking the wrong spot in helping identify the problem.

Can I get an update on this status?
 [2011-03-08 21:27 UTC] jason dot gerfen at gmail dot com
On another note. Using strictly SSL commands to generate a new private key using both openssl-0.9.8x & openssl-1.0.0x (installed from source) produce a valid password protected private key.
