more key tricks openssl

Have you ever want to  change a passphrase on a RSA private-key? With openssl the steps are easy

1: determine your encrypted key encryption by reading in  the existing  private-key and look at the top lines that shows the key type and encryption

2: Now re-read and apply encryption on the target key with the new name and passphrase

3: If you ever decide on removing the existing passphrase all together, just read in the existing  private-key and write a new output
