    Secure Proxy servers.
    
    When you export an SSH Host Identity Key created within
    Sterling B2B Integrator (SBI), the passphrase is encrypted
    (unreadable). There is nomethod to decrypt this passphrase, so
    you cannot import the SSH Host Identity Key into Sterling Secure
    Proxy (SSP) server.
    
    A customer requests a valid method to export the SSH Host
    Identity Key, originally created within SBI, so that this key
    can be imported into their SSP server.

    impact to the remote customers. The remote trading
    partners can continue to use the existing public key,
    even though SSP is added into the environment configuration.
