acme.js

Free SSL for everybody. The bare essentials of the Let’s Encrypt v2 (ACME) API. Built for Greenlock, by request.

| A Root Project |

Looking for Quick ‘n’ Easy™?

This is intented for building ACME API clients in node.js. It is not a high-level, fully-integrated solution.

Demonstration

As this is intended to build ACME clients, there is not a simple 2-line example.

I’d recommend first trying out one of the greenlock-express.js or Greenlock for Web Servers examples, which are guaranteed to work and have great error checking to help you debug.

Then I’d recommend running the example CLI client with a test domain and then investigating the files used for that example:

git clone https://git.coolaj86.com/coolaj86/acme.js.git
pushd acme.js/
node examples/cli.js

The example cli has the following prompts:

What web address(es) would you like to get certificates for? (ex: example.com,*.example.com)
What challenge will you be testing today? http-01 or dns-01? [http-01]
What email should we use? (optional)
What directoryUrl should we use? [https://acme-staging-v02.api.letsencrypt.org/directory]

Put the string 'mBfh0SqaAV3MOK3B6cAhCbIReAyDuwuxlO1Sl70x6bM.VNAzCR4THe4czVzo9piNn73B1ZXRLaB2CESwJfKkvRM' into a file at 'example.com/.well-known/acme-challenge/mBfh0SqaAV3MOK3B6cAhCbIReAyDuwuxlO1Sl70x6bM'

echo 'mBfh0SqaAV3MOK3B6cAhCbIReAyDuwuxlO1Sl70x6bM.VNAzCR4THe4czVzo9piNn73B1ZXRLaB2CESwJfKkvRM' > 'example.com/.well-known/acme-challenge/mBfh0SqaAV3MOK3B6cAhCbIReAyDuwuxlO1Sl70x6bM'

Then hit the 'any' key to continue...

When you’ve completed the challenge you can hit a key to continue the process.

If you place the certificate you receive back in tests/fullchain.pem then you can test it with examples/https-server.js.

examples/cli.js
examples/genkeypair.js
examples/https-server.js
examples/http-server.js

Let’s Encrypt v2 / ACME draft 11 Support

This library (acme.js) supports ACME draft 11, otherwise known as Let’s Encrypt v2 (or v02).

  • ACME draft 11
  • Let’s Encrypt v2
  • Let’s Encrypt v02
# Production URL
https://acme-v02.api.letsencrypt.org/directory
# Staging URL
https://acme-staging-v02.api.letsencrypt.org/directory

Install

Install via npm

npm install --save acme

Install via git

npm install https://git.coolaj86.com/coolaj86/acme.js.git

API

This API is an evolution of le-acme-core, but tries to provide a better mapping to the new draft 11 APIs.

Status: Almost stable, but not semver locked.

Patch versions will not introduce breaking changes, but may introduce lower-level APIs. Minor versions may change return values to include more information.

Overview

var ACME = require('acme').ACME;

ACME.create(opts)

acme.init(acmeDirectoryUrl)
acme.accounts.create(opts)
acme.certificates.create(opts)

Detailed Explanation

var ACME = require('acme').ACME;

// Create Instance (Dependency Injection)
var acme = ACME.create({
  RSA: require('rsa-compat').RSA

  // other overrides
, request: require('request')
, promisify: require('util').promisify

  // used for constructing user-agent
, os: require('os')
, process: require('process')

  // used for overriding the default user-agent
, userAgent: 'My custom UA String'
, getUserAgentString: function (deps) { return 'My custom UA String'; }

  // don't try to validate challenges locally
, skipChallengeTest: false
});


// Discover Directory URLs
acme.init(acmeDirectoryUrl)                   // returns Promise<acmeUrls={keyChange,meta,newAccount,newNonce,newOrder,revokeCert}>


// Accounts
acme.accounts.create(options)                 // returns Promise<regr> registration data

    { email: '<email>'                        //    valid email (server checks MX records)
    , accountKeypair: {                       //    privateKeyPem or privateKeyJwt
        privateKeyPem: '<ASCII PEM>'
      }
    , agreeToTerms: fn (tosUrl) {}            //    returns Promise with tosUrl
    }


// Registration
acme.certificates.create(options)             // returns Promise<pems={ privkey (key), cert, chain (ca) }>

    { newAuthzUrl: '<url>'                    //    specify acmeUrls.newAuthz
    , newCertUrl: '<url>'                     //    specify acmeUrls.newCert

    , domainKeypair: {
        privateKeyPem: '<ASCII PEM>'
      }
    , accountKeypair: {
        privateKeyPem: '<ASCII PEM>'
      }
    , domains: [ 'example.com' ]

    , setChallenge: fn (hostname, key, val)   // return Promise
    , removeChallenge: fn (hostname, key)     // return Promise
    }

Helpers & Stuff

// Constants
ACME.challengePrefixes['http-01']             // '/.well-known/acme-challenge'
ACME.challengePrefixes['dns-01']              // '_acme-challenge'
