The Automatic Certificate Management Environment (ACME) protocol has been proposed by the letsencrypt initiative as a standard protocol for domain validation and certificate issuance. The overview from the spec:
ACME allows a client to request certificate management actions using
a set of JSON messages carried over HTTPS. It is a prerequisite for
this process that the client be configured with the HTTPS URI for the
server. ACME messages MUST NOT be carried over "plain" HTTP, without
Implementation of what would be required to enhance Certmonger to function
as an ACME client should be undertaken.
