Document: draft-ietf-acme-subdomains-04


This document (with intended status Standards Track) extends ACME [RFC8555] to
support issuing certificates for subdomains. This is a well-written document.

Major issues: None.

Minor issues: None.

Nits/editorial comments:

1- Question: Section 4.3, Would it better to replace "a given identifier FQDN"
with "a given subdomain"?
   Clients need a mechanism to optionally indicate to servers whether or
   not they are authorized to fulfill challenges against parent domains
   for a given identifier FQDN.

2- Question: Section 5, it seems that the text below the call flow figure is
not consistent with the figure. It would be better to describe the differences
between the steps in the figure and the steps in the text below.

3- Inconsistent words: Section 5, pre-authorised -> pre-authorized

4- Question: Section 8, Is RFC 8555 a normal reference as this document is an
enhancement to this RFC?
