Hurricane Electric DNS Authenticator plugin for Certbot

Project description

Hurricane Electric DNS Authenticator plugin for Certbot


Install cerbot-dns-he to your Certbot’s environment with pip. For example, the line below works for me after running certbot-auto.

$ sudo /opt/ install cerbot-dns-he

You can also use git+ or clone the repository and install from the directory, but pip is recommended.

Example usage

Create a configuration file with your username and password:

certbot_dns_he:dns_he_user = Me
certbot_dns_he:dns_he_pass = my HE password

and chmod it to 600:

$ chmod 600 dns_he.ini

Then request a certificate with something like:

$ certbot-auto certonly \
  -a certbot-dns-he:dns-he --certbot-dns-he:dns-he-propagation-seconds 30 \
  --certbot-dns-he:dns-he-credentials /home/me/dns_he.ini -d ',*' \
  --server --agree-tos \
  --manual-public-ip-logging-ok --preferred-challenges dns -m

You’re done!

--certbot-dns-he:dns-he-propagation-seconds controls the duration waited for the DNS record(s) to propagate.
--certbot-dns-he:dns-he-credentials specifies the configuration file path.

These are stored in cerbot’s renewal configuration, so they’ll work on your automatic renewals.
