Let's Encrypt free security certificate program leaves beta


Let's Encrypt has announced that the free secure certificate program is leaving beta in its push to encrypt 100 percent of the web. The certificate authority (CA) announced on Tuesday that the Let's Encrypt program has left the beta stage of testing after four months, having issued over 1.5 million HTTPS certificates to approximately three million websites worldwide. In a blog post, Let's Encrypt said the project is pushing "much closer" to the overall target of providing free security certificates to every webmaster online. Transport Layer Security (TLS) certificates are implemented on websites to add a layer of encryption and additional security to communication between a user and website server. Without this layer, communication and transactions are more vulnerable to surveillance, drive-by attacks and potentially data theft.
