ssh with rsa keys stopped working with latest openssl packages




Hi,

after updating my cygwin environment, ssh stopped working
for me using SSH keys. SSH to a host, I get:

Load key "/home/user/.ssh/id_rsa": invalid format
then it's falling back to the password.

I'm on:
CYGWIN_NT-10.0 CLIENTHOST 2.11.1(0.329/5/3) 2018-09-05 10:24 x86_64 Cygwin
and I have the following packages installed:

1.0.2p-1 openssl, openssl-devel, libopenssl100

openssh 7.8p1-1

This is how my id_rsa key looks like:


-----BEGIN RSA PRIVATE KEY-----
Proc-Type: 4,ENCRYPTED
DEK-Info: AES-128-CBC,56A6DA55614F68D86D817C504D1C690D

....

-----END RSA PRIVATE KEY-----

Downgrading the openssl packages to 1.0.2.o-1
makes it work again.

cheers,
Sebastian
