Title: Certbot - new feature request.
Post by: Martinezio on January 30, 2017, 01:38:20 pm
Hello :)

I would like to ask You, Team, if You be so kind to port a python library called py27-certbot into OpnSense.

This library and tool comes from EFF organisation, and is used for managing certificates from Let's Encrypt organisation, which can be used for HTTPS communication.

EFF's Certbot is available in ports for FreeBSD: https://certbot.eff.org/#freebsd-other
but is not available within OpnSense (or I cannot install them with simple pkg install py27-certbot).

Thank You in advance for any help with this subject :)

Best regards,

Hi Martin,

We talked about this a few times and the conclusion is certbot has way too many dependencies to be added to our repository. But:

(a) you can still build it from the ports on an OPNsense directly

(b) we have the OpenBSD acme-client

( (c) we used to have acme_tiny installed, but apparently nobody used it )

(d) we now use acme.sh in the Let's Encrypt plugin which is going to be released with 17.1 tomorrow.
