Introducing the acme-conductor

by Niklaus 'vimja' Hofer on 2016-02-02

Over the past weeks, 2_B has invested a substantial amount of time into the development of a new ACME client. ACME, for those who don't know, is the protocol developed by letsencrypt to validate the ownership of domains. The client developed by 2_B, called acme-conductor, is focused on making lots of certificates for a large number of hosts, which is unlike most other ACME clients.

For a while now, acme-conductor can be used productivly, even if he is still in the beta phase. The certificates for our XMPP infrastructure for example, are managed by an acme-conductor. So the time has come to present the software to a larger audience and make it available to the public.

At the next Chaostreff, on Tuesday 2016-02-09 from about 20h, 2_B will introduce his software in a short presentation. The presentation is for people who has a technical knowlege and e.g. know what ssh is. This will be held at our usual meeting location, at the Güterstrasse 8.
