DNS Challenge Type - Route53 - Support for EC2 IAM Roles

Is there a plan to support this authentication method?

Cerbot has the certbot-dns-route53 plugin which defaults to this authentication method for EC2 instances. It would be super useful for Certify The Web to support this as API keys shouldn’t be required to authenticate to Route53 inside of EC2.

Thanks, I think this is the first time anyone has requested this - it’s not currently on our list of features to work on but I will add it now. In the meantime you would need to use an API key.

Thank you! I’ve setup with API keys for the mean time.
