This is not a bug. Please ignore my previous message

If the private key file is password protected, need to specify the password:

As per http://www.erlang.org/doc/apps/ssl/using_ssl.html
2 server> {ok, ListenSocket} =
ssl:listen(9999, [{certfile, "cert.pem"}, {keyfile,
"key.pem"},{reuseaddr, true}]).
{ok,{sslsocket, [...]}}

With password specified:
{ok, ListenSocket} =
ssl:listen(9999,[{keyfile,Pem_file_name},{password,Password_value},{reuseaddr,true}]).
