EFF's Let's Encrypt enters Public Beta

Accepted submission by rigrig at 2015-12-03 19:39:33

As of today, invitations are no longer needed to get a free certificated signed by the EFF's [] Let's Encrypt CA [].

The user guide [] explains several options for the process, ranging from automatically setting up SSL for Apache [] or Nginx [] (support for Nginx is still experimental), to a manual process for those who would rather not run the installer as root.

Let’s Encrypt CA issues short lived certificates (90 days), which shouldn't be a problem with a sufficiently automated renewal process. It looks like [] wildcard certificates won't be issued anytime soon (if at all), but you can get certificates that are good for multiple subdomains.
