OpenSSL error 0906D06C
OpenSSL (error) Monday, 14 February 2022 by paul

When using the Windows version of OpenSSL to carry out operations on certificate it displays the following error message:

unable to load private key

error:0906D06C:PEM routines:PEM_read_bio:no start line:pem_lib.c:707:Expecting: ANY PRIVATE KEY

unable to write 'random state'

This was due to the key file encoding (UTF-8-BOM).

To fix load the file into notepad++ and change the encoding from UTF-8-BOM to UTF-8. Then it should process the files fine.
