Don’t do this at home - Wild Domino 12.0.1 CertMgr configurations

Daniel Nashed  17 December 2021 20:24:25

Domino 12 CertMgr is around for a while and got cool new features in 12.0.1 like exportable keys.
But let me show you something today that is already in Version 12.0.

It's not explicitly documented. But because it is designed for flexibility, there are wild configurations you could run.
I am running it with internet domains hosted at different providers with different DNS TXT APIs in production since the early Domino 12.0 beta phase.

Let me share a certificate request I setup demoing it for a friend today spanning multiple providers...

Multiple ACME providers supported. New in 12.0.1: SSL.COM

I am also using different types of ACME providers -- Starting with 12.0.1 also SSL.COM is supported ( there was a minor change needed to support their way to use external account binding - aka EAB).

In my example I am using ZeroSSL. But the same works also with Let's Encrypt and other ACME providers.
ACME is a standard with some extensions to register at providers. ZeroSSL and SSL.COM require this external account binding (EAB).

Using multiple DNS TXT APIs for different domains -- at the same time!


In my domain I am using multiple DNS TXT APIs at different providers.
They are all available using the HCL GitHub repository -->
https://github.com/hCL-TECH-SOFTWARE/domino-cert-manager

Here is a list of the domains I am using for testing.
Digital Ocean is a sub domain delegation using their DNS API with their DNS service pointing name server entries to an account it Digital Ocean.
And I also leveraging the deSEC provider I blogged about recently.

Create TLS Credentials for multiple domains hosted at multiple providers

In my example I am creating a certificate for multiple SANs (subject alternate names) hosted at different providers.
The DNS entry www.nashed.de does not have a DNS API configured and uses a HTTP-01 challenge.
All other SANs map to domains, which trigger a DNS-01 challenge for an account on different DNS providers/accounts.


Here is how the TLS Credentials document looks like:

Once you submit the request you see CertMgr starts a single ACME request with ZeroSSL.
During that operation ZeroSSL asks to place 6 DNS-01 challenges and one HTTP-01 challenge.

Here is the log showing the operations performed:

17.12.2021 19:44:14   CertMgr: Waiting 80 seconds before confirming [HTTP-01: 1] [DNS-01: 6] challenge(s) are in place ..


The HTTP-01 is the fastest operation. The challenge is placed into certstore.nsf and is waiting for validation via HTTP request (now in 12.0.1 with the embedded challenge validation replacing the DSAPI filter).
In parallel you can see that different domains use different DNS API accounts to bring TXT records in place for the DNS challenges.


I could even have added wild-card SAN names for those DNS-01 validated SANs. Or have used IDNs with umlauts or other international chars.


Here is the list of DNS-01 challenges CertMgr creates during the ACME flow:

Once all challenges are in place and CertMgr confirms the challenge via ACME protocol, a CSR is send to ZeroSSL and a certificate is issued from ZeroSSL.
You can see the result above in the TLS Credentials document. And you can look into details in the dump below.


Conclusion/Summary


CertMgr uses the ACME standards with all the different options available and you can mix and match what you need using different providers.
Once configured CertMgr triggers the right operation in back-end. And the logs show all the details if needed.

No you don't have to use all those different providers at once for one SSL certificate. I am just trying to show how it works and what is possible also for different SSL certificates you request.

Most other ACME integrations are command-line driven. CertMgr comes with a modern UI with all the options available directly in the cerstore.nsf.
This makes CertMgr a very powerful tool for managing external certificates in your Domino environment and also for other applications.

With the new exportable keys introduced in Domino 12.0.1 you can use the SSL certificates also in other environments to take benefit of this flexibility.

Here is the log. they are using a intermediate CA which is already a ECDSA NIST P-384 key and the signature for my ECDSA key is ecdsa-with-SHA384.
