Let's Encrypt gets automation

Stuart 22 Silver badge

Secure financial transactions are one thing, not having your WordPress or forum login sent in plain text is another. Indeed nothing private should be sent in plain text (listening el reg?). But at the bottom non-commercial level you are not going to get usable encryption unless it is free or nearly free.

That's what let's encrypt is about. How the big boys earn trust is another. EV seems to work. The education of users when to demand EV is another matter. Not sure how we can crack that.
