Let’s Encrypt million has issued free ssl certificates




After something has the Let’s Encrypt Certificate Authority issued its millionth SSL certificate for more than three months. Since the certificates may serve multiple domain names, the number of domain names that are accessed via https is much higher.

The public issue of licenses began in early December with an open beta and now the number passed the million. Incidentally, on its own statistics page of Let’s Encrypt a number of just under a million, but a search on certificates supplies have that number. The total number of domain names that are operated by the Let’s Encrypt Certificate Authority is now more than 2.5 million.

Ninety percent are moreover domain names that were not visit https using a browser, writes the Electronic Frontier Foundation, one of the initiators. With a number of, at time of writing 23 695, .nl domain names take a share of 2.25 percent of the total in. .be Domain names are not specified in the statement; ‘Other’ take 24 percent in equal shares as .com.

That the project would be popular already seemed clear. At the closed beta have already distributed 26,000 certificates quickly and the focus is global in size. The aim of the initiative is to give as many sites https support by providing free SSL certificates and deployment easier to make. In addition to the EFF work Mozilla, Cisco, Akamai, IdenTrust and researchers from the University of Michigan to Encrypt the Web project.
