Domain Verification Process

  • Aleff uses the HTTP-01 verification method.
  • The verification key and token are stored in Consul for the duration of the verification process.
  • The aleff-challenge-responder component receives the verification request, looks up the key in Consul and returns the token stored there.
  • Once the verification process is complete the key is removed from Consul.
  • Note that verification takes place over a non-SSL connection on port 80.
