Subject: Cracking CSR Private Key


I'm having trouble cracking a key I created in the following way:

openssl req -newkey rsa:2048 -keyout keynamehere.key -out csrnamehere.key

I don't see a corresponding xxx2john utility to convert this sort of key to
a hash that john can understand. Is it impossible or am I just missing

Appreciate the help.
