RHEL Engineering is moving the tracking of its product development work on RHEL 6 through RHEL 9 to Red Hat Jira (issues.redhat.com). If you're a Red Hat customer, please continue to file support cases via the Red Hat customer portal. If you're not, please head to the "RHEL project" in Red Hat Jira and file new tickets here. Individual Bugzilla bugs in the statuses "NEW", "ASSIGNED", and "POST" are being migrated throughout September 2023. Bugs of Red Hat partners with an assigned Engineering Partner Manager (EPM) are migrated in late September as per pre-agreed dates. Bugs against components "kernel", "kernel-rt", and "kpatch" are only migrated if still in "NEW" or "ASSIGNED". If you cannot log in to RH Jira, please consult article #7032570. That failing, please send an e-mail to the RH Jira admins at rh-issues@redhat.com to troubleshoot your issue as a user management inquiry. The email creates a ServiceNow ticket with Red Hat. Individual Bugzilla bugs that are migrated will be moved to status "CLOSED", resolution "MIGRATED", and set with "MigratedToJIRA" in "Keywords". The link to the successor Jira issue will be found under "Links", have a little "two-footprint" icon next to it, and direct you to the "RHEL project" in Red Hat Jira (issue links are of type "https://issues.redhat.com/browse/RHEL-XXXX", where "X" is a digit). This same link will be available in a blue banner at the top of the page informing you that that bug has been migrated.

Description Fraser Tweedale 2020-05-07 11:22:28 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #1832841 +++

Problem and fix description per below commit message.
Upstream PR was already merged; commit is:

RFC 8555 §7.1 states:

  The server MUST provide "directory" and "newNonce" resources.

But RFC 8555 makes no explicit statement anywhere whether other
resources are, or are not, required (with the exception of
"newAuthz" which is optional).

Therefore it is possible that some ACME server implementations may
omit some resources; in particular those that are not an essential
part of the "order" workflow.  Indeed, I am working with one such
server implementation, which does not at this time implement
"keyChange".  mod_md refuses to interact with this server because it
is checking that a certain set of resources are defined in the
directory object - despite some of those resources not currently
being used.

Update the check to require only "newNonce", "newAccount" and
"newOrder".  Omit from the check and therefore tolerate the absense
of resources which are not always required: "revokeCert" and

If mod_md implements revocation and/or key rollover in the future,
the availability of those features should be predicated on the
server's advertised capabilities.
