HTTPS – Provided by Let’s Encrypt

An encrypted (secure) connection for free

“SSL should be a basic right!” That might or might not have been what the developers behind Let’s Encrypt thought. If so, I agree and if not, hey, what’s there not to like about a free certificate that actually works?

Currently, I wouldn’t try this if you’re not comfortable in the command line (shell). If that’s not a problem to you I suggest signing-up for the Let’s Encrypt public beta and encrypt away! If not, keep an eye on the project, I’m sure the installation and certificate generation process will get much easier in the near future.
