FREE SSL for everyone!
« on: December 04, 2015, 09:08:44 AM »
Backed by Mozilla, Facebook and other big names, a new Certificate Authority with free SSL:

https://letsencrypt.org/
"I possess a device, in my pocket, that is capable of accessing the entirety of information known to man.  I use it to look at pictures of cats and get in arguments with strangers."

Um that's cool!  I assume you still need a unique IP?  It also wasn't completely clear if it can act as a wildcard cert.

It seems like this would put a lot of companies out of business if it takes off.  It's nice to see these big companies pushing for more security.

Also, I like stems, leaves, and plump invertebrates, and they are hard to forage for this time of year.
