# New Documentation & [v2/v3 Migration Guide](https://git.rootprojects.org/root/greenlock.js/src/branch/v3/MIGRATION_GUIDE_V2_V3.md)
🔐 Free SSL, Free Wildcard SSL, and Fully Automated HTTPS for Node.js and Browsers, issued by Let's Encrypt v2 via ACME
Greenlock v3 was just released from private beta **today** (Nov 1st, 2019).
Greenlock™ is the easiest way to integrate Let's Encrypt into your projects, products, and infrastructure.
We're still working on the full documentation for this new version,
so please be patient.
To start, check out the
[Migration Guide](https://git.rootprojects.org/root/greenlock.js/src/branch/v3/MIGRATION_GUIDE_V2_V3.md).

# [Greenlock](https://git.rootprojects.org/root/greenlock.js) is Let's Encrypt for JavaScript
| Built by [Root](https://rootprojects.org) for [Hub](https://rootprojects.org/hub/)
Greenlock™ is an Automated Certificate Management Environement 🔐.
It uses **Let's Encrypt** to generate Free SSL Certificates, including **Wildcard** SSL.
It supports **Automated Renewal** of certs for Fully Automated HTTPS.
It's written in plain JavaScript and works in Node, Browsers, and WebPack.

# SSL Certificate & Domain Management
Full Docs: https://git.rootprojects.org/root/greenlock-manager-test.js
This is what keeps the mapping of domains <-> certificates.
In many cases it will interact with the same database as the Key & Cert Store, and probably the code as well.
- set({ subject, altnames, renewAt })
- find({ altnames, renewBefore })
```js
// should return a list of site configs:
[
{
subject: 'example.com',
altnames: ['example.com', 'exampleapi.com'],
renewAt: 1575197231760
},
{
subject: '*.example.com',
altnames: ['*.example.com'],
renewAt: 1575197231760,
challenges: {
'dns-01': {
module: 'acme-dns-01-dnsimple',
apikey: 'xxxx'
}
}
}
];

- remove({ subject })
- defaults() (both getter and setter)

"subscriberEmail": "jane@example.com",

# Key and Certificate Store
Full Docs: https://git.rootprojects.org/root/greenlock-store-test.js
This set of callbacks update your service with new certificates and keypairs.
Account Keys (JWK)
(though typically you only have one account key - because you only have one subscriber email)
- accounts.setKeypair({ email, keypair })
- accounts.checkKeypair({ email })
Certificate Keys (JWK + PEM)
(typically you have one for each set of domains, and each load balancer)
- certificates.setKeypair({ subject, keypair })
- certificates.checkKeypair({ subject })
(these are fine to implement the same as above, swapping subject/email)
Certificate PEMs
- certificates.set({ subject, pems })
- certificates.check({ subject })

# ACME Challenge HTTP-01 Strategies
Full Docs: https://git.rootprojects.org/root/acme-http-01-test.js
This validation and authorization strategy is done over plain HTTP on Port 80.
These are used to set files containing tokens that Let's Encrypt will fetch from each domain
before authorizing a certificate.
**NOT for Wildcards**.
- init({ request })
- set({ challenge: { type, token, keyAuthorization, challengeUrl } })
- get({ challenge: { type, token } })
- remove({ challenge: { type, token } })

# ACME Challenge DNS-01 Strategies
Full Docs https://git.rootprojects.org/root/acme-dns-01-test.js
This validation and authorization strategy is done over DNS on UDP and TCP ports 53.
**For Wildcards**
These are used to set TXT records containing tokens that Let's Encrypt will fetch for
each domain before authorizing a certificate.
- init({ request })
- zones()
- set({ challenge: { type, dnsZone, dnsPrefix, dnsHost, keyAuthorizationDigest } })
- get({ challenge: { type, dnsZone, dnsPrefix, dnsHost } })
- remove({ challenge: { type, dnsZone, dnsPrefix, dnsHost } })

### Issue Certificates
### Retrieve Certificates (One-Off)
**Disclaimer**: This is only intended for testing, demos, and SNICallback
(in [Greenlock Express](https://git.rootprojects.org/root/greenlock-express.js)).
Greenlock is intended to be left running to allow it to fetech and renew certifictates automatically.
It is intended that you use the `store` callbacks to new certificates instantly as soon as they renew.
This also protects you from accidentally stampeding the Let's Encrypt API with hundreds (or thousands)
of certificate requests.

This will renew only domains that have reached their `renewAt` or are within the befault `renewOffset`.

You are not required to call it. If you implement the `store` callbacks, the certificates
will automatically be saved (and if you don't implement them, they all get saved to disk).
