comment How are private keys stored on disk?
I think the 'magic' you refer to is a password-based-key-derivation-function such as PBKDF2 or, ideally, Scrypt. It's a function that derives a cryptographic key from a password, and is computationally expensive to the point that brute-force attacks become infeasible.

comment Is there a way to access PKCS5 or 7 padding in OpenSSL without encrypting something?
A not-so-ideal solution would be to encrypt with the default PKCS5#5 padding, and then decrypt specifying 'nopad' (which should leave you with padded cleartext)

comment Initialization vector with cipher block
@Jcs - your answer is not explicitly correct. The IV need not be secret, but it can be. See here for more info.
