Let’s Encrypt was released as Public Beta a couple of days ago.
You’ve got no excuses anymore, if you have a website, you have to use it!
It is easy (if you have one of the supported OSes), but above all…it’s free!! How cool is that?!? A Certificate Authority that provides you with certificates for FREE!! \o/
Okay, it all still comes with the risk of trusting a CA…a court could issue an order and get the master key, bla, bla, bla…
But hey, this is a step in the right direction!
One day we’ll have a secure net that doesn’t rely on CAs anymore.
