Encryption using Openssl


If you remember your RHCE Training or RHCSS RH333 training you must have memories of using openssl for encrypting files.

Here is a small tip where you can use the same openssl to encrypt whatever you type on the keyboard which will get appended in the filename of your choice.

Then you can use the same openssl to decrypt the file again.

Below is a small illustration from my machine.
