Let's encrypt

A free CA that works with server-side software to auto-deploy and renew SSL certs.

My old pal Seth Schoen is involved (though not his ascii beard), I'm excited.

@Greg Grossmeier They need to go through a lot of processes, including becoming a browser-installed real CA, right?

It looks like they're working with Mozilla though, so that's good.

I hear ya. But you gotta sign one to get an SSL cert these days in my experience anyway... or a domain... or anything identifier oriented in this modern web ;p
