Scheduled for launch in 2015, Let's Encrypt is a new CA designed to encrypt the entire Web. This is a demo/preview of the Let's Encrypt agent software.

letsencrypt/lets-encrypt-preview ? GitHub

The Let's Encrypt Client is a tool to automatically receive and install X.509 certificates to enable TLS on servers. The client will interoperate with the Let's Encrypt CA which will be issuing browser-trusted certificates for free beginning the summer of 2015.

It's all automated:

  • The tool will prove domain control to the CA and submit a CSR (Certificate Signing Request).
  • If domain control has been proven, a certificate will get issued and the tool will automatically install it.
