1.  Introduction

   The Automatic Certificate Management Environment (ACME) [RFC8555]
   only defines challenges for validating control of DNS host name
   identifiers which limits its use to being used for issuing
   certificates for DNS identifiers.  In order to allow validation of
   IPv4 and IPv6 identifiers for inclusion in X.509 certificates this
   document specifies how challenges defined in the original ACME
   specification and the TLS-ALPN extension specification
   [I-D.ietf-acme-tls-alpn] can be used to validate IP identifiers.

2.  Terminology

   In this document, the key words "MUST", "MUST NOT", "REQUIRED",
   "SHALL", "SHALL NOT", "SHOULD", "SHOULD NOT", "RECOMMENDED", "MAY",
   and "OPTIONAL" are to be interpreted as described in BCP 14,
   [RFC2119].

3.  IP Identifier

   [RFC8555] only defines the identifier type "dns" which is used to
   refer to fully qualified domain names.  If a ACME server wishes to
   request proof that a user controls a IPv4 or IPv6 address it MUST
   create an authorization with the identifier type "ip".  The value
   field of the identifier MUST contain the textual form of the address
   as defined in [RFC1123] Section 2.1 for IPv4 and in [RFC5952]
   Section 4 for IPv6.

   An identifier for the IPv6 address 2001:db8::1 would be formatted
   like so:

   {"type": "ip", "value": "2001:db8::1"}

4.  Identifier Validation Challenges

   IP identifiers MAY be used with the existing "http-01" and "tls-alpn-
   01" challenges from [RFC8555] Section 8.3 and
   [I-D.ietf-acme-tls-alpn] Section 3 respectively.  To use IP
