Hi All,

I am trying to create a pem format key for my existing key by using the
below command.

openssl rsa -in my_rsa_key -outform PEM -out  my_res_newkey_pem

The new key format is  -----BEGIN PRIVATE KEY-----.
But I am expecting -----BEGIN RSA PRIVATE KEY-----

In nonFIPS mode i am getting -----BEGIN RSA PRIVATE KEY----- as expected.

My openssl version is OpenSSL 0.9.8zf-fips.

Please let me know how can I generate the new key  in BEGIN RSA PRIVATE KEY
