Authorised domain for internal use with a custom suffix authorised but not able to pull certificate


#1

Hi,

As described above, I applied for a certificate for the domain plant.os, which is an internal thing I’m working on accessible only with a specific DNS entry on a specific network.

My application was accepted and the domain whitelisted, but when I try to pull the certificate, I get:

Error: unauthorized :: The client lacks sufficient authorization :: Error creating new authz :: Name does not end in a public suffix

Is there a way around this? Or is the acceptance automated and these certificates are not suitable for my needs?

Thanks in advance!

I’m afraid the beta invitation tool is less sophisticated than the CA software; it’s true, only public suffixes are permitted for use with Let’s Encrypt. Sorry!

well it is obvious because anyone can have that name and if it’s internal only you could make an own CA and/or a sef-signed cert and try to import it to the clients.
