Let’s Encrypt—a new certificate authority from the Internet Security Research Group (ISRG)—has been promising to help with this (“HTTPS Everywhere”), pledging to be “free, automated and open”.
They just announced public beta today, so I decided to give the beta version of their system a try on wpostats.com.
I’ve been watching the Let’s Encrypt story for months. Now that the service has finally been rolled-out, it’s interesting to read what others are making of it. So far, I’ve only read good things, apart from some grumbles about the 3 month renewal period. Anyhow, I’m looking forward to giving it a try myself.
