As days are passing, encryption is becoming a need for every user sitting online. Many tech giants including Google, Apple and Yahoo! are adopting encryption to serve its users security and privacy at its best, but according to Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF), the high-tech Web security should not be limited to the wealthiest technology firms.
Let’s Encrypt — A Certificate Authority to Provide Free SSL Certificates for Entire Website
“Let’s Encrypt is a new free certificate authority, built on a foundation of cooperation and openness, that lets everyone be up and running with basic server certificates for their domains through a simple one-click process,” its official website explains. “For many server operators, getting even a basic server certificate is just too much of a hassle. The application process can be confusing. It usually costs money. It’s tricky to install correctly. It’s a pain to update.”
“This project should boost everyday data protection for almost everyone who uses the Internet,”
EFF Technology Projects Director Peter Eckersley said in a statement.
“Right now when you use the Web, many of your communications—your usernames, passwords, and browsing histories—are vulnerable to hackers and others. By making it free for websites to install encryption for their users, we will all be safer online.“
We’re excited to support Let’s Encrypt and by extension support the increased security of the Internet at large. We hope you’re excited too — Start website hosting with AfeesHost today and get a free TLS certificate.
