My thirty day journey
moving from StartCom to Let's Encrypt is finally over
. My home server at www.flypig.org.uk
is now secured using a Let's-Encrypt-signed certificate, and from what I can tell, it seems to be working great. StartCom may or may not have served me well (free certificate signing: good
; issuing backdated SHA-1 certs: bad
), but allowing webmasters access to signed certs for TLS at minimal cost is really important in my view. It's by far the best way to improve security on the Web right now. I'm glad Let's Encrypt has picked up the mantle (and given me a free certificate!).
