With so much of personal and sensitive information flowing through internet which can be easily tapped into, end-to-end encryption should be the default mode of online communication. But to achieve that website owners not only need to purchase SSL certificates from verified registry's but also have to install(takes 2-3 hours), and manage them which makes them keep using HTTP instead of HTTPS.
Let’s Encrypt is all set to change that, the new "free certificate authority" lets everyone be up and running with basic server certificates for their domains through a simple one-click process. Backed by tech biggies like Mozilla, Cisco, Akamai, Electronic Frontier Foundation and IdenTrust etc. this new offering will be free, automated, transparent, secure and open.
