|Summary||0001464: Support ACME protocol for issuing certificates|
|Description||Request by CAcert board. First step is to evaluate the amount of work needed, then the decision should be made whether to implement the protocol or to postpone it.|
|Tags||No tags attached.|
||Start for research is Wikipedia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Automated_Certificate_Management_Environment, the corresponding RFC seems to be https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc8555|
I have given the RFC a first cursorry reading. My findings are recorded in the WiKi at https://wiki.cacert.org/Software/Projects/Bug%231464%3A%20ACME%20protocol
Feel free to add your own findings there.
As a (preliminary!) summary, I guess that there will be some work to do, implementing extensions to the CAcert website as well as implementing the protocol interface itself, probably several days of work, but that the job itself will not be impossible.
