Let's Encrypt: Boulder cookbook

This is a cookbook for provisioning Boulder, an
ACME-based certificate authority, written in Go. The
Boulder application is an official effort of Let's Encrypt

Warning: This cookbook was created for testing other cookbooks, not
production purposes.

Supported Platforms

  • Ubuntu 14.04
  • Centos 7


Key Type Description
['boulder']['config']['boulder-config'] Hash Deep-merged into eponymous config file.
['boulder']['config']['issuer-ocsp-responder'] Hash Deep-merged into eponymous config file.



Install and starts the Boulder server.


  • Pay close attention to the output of any failed attempts. By default,
    Boulder tries to use all ports in the range 8000 to 8010, among
    others. If there is a conflict with other applications, you can use this
    cookbook's attributes to force Boulder onto a different port.

  • If you're running the boulder server during testing, and it's on the
    same server as the webserver, you'll likely want to edit the
    hostsfile. The hostfile cookbook is great for this.


To tag and publish a new version of this cookbook, first ensure:

  • the metadata.rb version has been bumped appropriately,
  • the has been updated, and
  • all changes have been committed to git.

Once that has been done:

bundle exec rake publish

This will create a git tag and push a new release to the Supermarket.
