JWS verification error


I ran this command:

$dnsIdentifiers = @("example.com","www.example.com"); # Strings will automatically be converted to AcmeIdentifier
$order = New-ACMEOrder -State $acmeStateDir -Identifiers $dnsIdentifiers;

It produced this output:

Server returned Problem (Status: 400).
Type: urn:ietf:params:acme:error:malformed
JWS verification error

What is the reason for this error?
Maybe because of the example domain?

Does it not “error:malformed” with only a single name?

It’s the same when i use a single name

Are you using a real domain?

No, it is not a real domain
i just want to check my code before i use a real domain

Then check your code against the staging system (not production).
And use a more realistic name (even if not an actual real one).

Try using a more realistic name.
Say your real domain is:
Then try:
[none of which need to be resolvable - but could be]

Thanks, got it
i will do that


I don’t know that that will fix the prblem.
[probably won’t]
But I have to rule it our first.

So, if it doesn’t, then I would suspect that there may be an issue with the “type” and the “value(s)” used by “$dnsIdentifiers” in your code [or localization issue].
For that, I would try a simple set and then print back the value(s) and compare.

It is still not working
How do you mean to compare the values?

Well like in any programming language.

You can try setting the variable with a specific single value.
Show/Print it.
Then set it with a multiple entries value.
Show/Print that.

If the output doesn’t equal the set input, then the code has a problem.

I checked and it is equal…What can be the problem?

I don’t have enough information nor (possibly) knowledge of the program you are using to help you any further.

Maybe there is a support page for that client.
