I work on Ubuntu 16.04 with all recent updates, but I still keep getting
a series of this same messages:
"Unencrypted private keys are insecure - The selected private key does
not appear to be protected by a password."
when I edit settings to the company's WiFi:
+ password protected key
When I "okey" through all the messages and try to connect to the WiFi -
I wait some time and then get the messages all over again.

Unencrypted private keys are insecure error reported even when key is

Status in network-manager package in Ubuntu:
When I enter an EAP-TLS wifi config, I get the error:
"Unencrypted private keys are insecure
The selected private key does not appear to be protected by a password. This
could allow your security credentials to be compromised. Please select a
password-protected private key.
(You can password-protect your private key with openssl)"
I have verified that my key is, in fact, encrypted, and I have tried
using both des3 and aes256. I have also verified the password used to
encrypt the key.
For a while, it wouldn't even let me save the config. I managed to
save it eventually, but now when I try to connect to the saved
connection, I get the same error.
