The problem is I don't know if this will work if the program you specify needs to interact with a tty to prompt for the passphrase because the calendar server worker processes don't have a tty as far as I know.
Glyph, Fred and Morgen,
thanks for your help on this issue. I confirm that once I strip the password from the key, caldavd works as expected.
I will check whether I can use security(1) tool in place of SSLPassPhraseDialog (with some modifications to caldavd's code), as I don't have certadmin on my Mac OS X.
Thanks once again,
