Hi Team,
I have a query. I see the below API is used to write the private key in
encrypted PKCS#8 format.

*PEM_write_bio_PKCS8PrivateKey()* and *PEM_write_PKCS8PrivateKey()* write a
private key in an EVP_PKEY structure in PKCS#8 EncryptedPrivateKeyInfo
format using PKCS#5 v2.0 password based encryption algorithms.

Do we have an API for converting the encrypted private key file to an
unencrypted private key file in PKCS#8 format?
