Porunov Java ACME Client (PJAC)

An ACME client application for step-by-step SSL certificate management.

PJAC is a CLI management agent designed for use with your own automation tools (ansible, puppet, chef, saltstack, etc.). Also suitable if you want to automate certificate management with your own scripts/programs/crond-jobs etc.).

ACME is a protocol that a Certificate Authority (CA) and an applicant can use to automate the process of verification and certificate issuance.

This application is based on acme4j, a Java ACME library implementation. If you need your own implementation you can use that library.
