ACME integration with DevOpsACCELERATE¶
ACME is a simple client/server protocol based on HTTP. The client represents the applicant for a certificate (e.g., a web server operator), and DevOpsACCELERATE represents the CA. ACME enables DevOpsACCELERATE to verify that the applicant owns some number of domains, and then enables the applicant to request certificates for those domains.
The ACME client that is used by DevOpsACCELERATE is certbot.

About the ACME protocol
The Automatic Certificate Management Environment (ACME) protocol is a communications protocol for automating interactions between certificate authorities and their users' web servers, allowing the automated deployment of public key infrastructure at very low cost. It was designed by the Internet Security Research Group (ISRG).

About the Venafi Cloud ACME Server
The Venafi Cloud ACME server is implemented as a service which is associated with Zones that are created in Venafi Cloud . The ACME server URL is constructed based on the Zone ID that is associated with each Zone. The Zone configuration screen displays the URL of the ACME server associated with each zone. When certificate requests are submitted by ACME clients to the Venafi Cloud ACME server, the requests are processed based on the Issuing Template associated with the Zone.
