transip_ DNS Authenticator plugin for Certbot

This plugin automates the process of completing a dns-01 challenge by creating, and subsequently removing, TXT records using the transip Remote API.

Configuration of transip

In you need to have to a keypair


pip install certbot-dns-transip-simple

Named Arguments

To start using DNS authentication for transip, pass the following arguments on certbot's command line:

--authenticator certbot-dns-transip:dns-transip: select the authenticator plugin (Required)

--dns-transip-credentials: transip Remote User credentials INI file. (Required)

--dns-transip-propagation-seconds: waiting time for DNS to propagate before asking the ACME server to verify the DNS record. Default: 10, Recommended: >= 600)


An example credentials.ini file:

dns_transip_username = myremoteuser
dns_transip_api_key_file = path/to/transip_api_key

The path to this file can be provided interactively or using the --dns-transip-credentials command-line argument. Certbot records the path to this file for use during renewal, but does not store the file's contents.

CAUTION: You should protect these API credentials as you would the password to your transip account. Users who can read this file can use these credentials to issue arbitrary API calls on your behalf. Users who can cause Certbot to run using these credentials can complete a dns-01 challenge to acquire new certificates or revoke existing certificates for associated domains, even if those domains aren't being managed by this server.

Certbot will emit a warning if it detects that the credentials file can be accessed by other users on your system. The warning reads "Unsafe permissions on credentials configuration file", followed by the path to the credentials file. This warning will be emitted each time Certbot uses the credentials file, including for renewal, and cannot be silenced except by addressing the issue (e.g., by using a command like chmod 600 to restrict access to the file).


To acquire a single certificate for both and *, waiting 900 seconds for DNS propagation:

certbot certonly \
   --authenticator dns-transip \
   --dns-transip-credentials /etc/letsencrypt/.secrets/domain.tld.ini \
   --dns-transip-propagation-seconds 900 \
   --server \
   --agree-tos \
   --rsa-key-size 4096 \
   -d '' \
   -d '*'
certbot certonly -d '' -d '*' --agree-tos  --authenticator dns-transip --dns-transip-credentials=credentials.ini  -n --dns-transip-propagation-seconds 600

It is suggested to secure the folder as follows:: chown root:root /etc/letsencrypt/.secrets chmod 600 /etc/letsencrypt/.secrets
