3 million issued certs and almost 2 million unexpired certificates


3 Million certs, and almost 2 million unassigned certificates issued

Just 19 days after reaching the two million (https://www.eff.org/deeplinks/2016/04/lets-encrypt-reaches-2000000-certificates), 21 april.

I’m so proud of what Let’s Encrypt has reached!

I also love to use it myself :smiley:



indeed 3 million ssl certificates is amazing !


When will Unexpired Certificates be updated again?

Thanks. :slight_smile:


Another milestone: IdenTrust’s root is now used by 1,0 % of all sites, according to W³Techs. That is 5,0 % of all the websites whose certificate authority they know. :+1:


Unexpired Certificates is now updated. :slight_smile: https://letsencrypt.org/stats/


Unfortunately since may 20th it is not updated again…

  • 2016-06-01: three million unexpired certificates.
  • 2016-06-03: four million issued certificates.
  • 2016-06-03: IdenTrust’s market share is 6 % (W³Techs).



IdenTrust is now used more than GlobalSign (W³Techs). :slight_smile:


“Every 50 seconds one of the top 10 million websites starts using IdenTrust, which is used as root certificate for Let’s Encrypt.” https://plus.google.com/u/0/+W3techs/posts/AjEWbkBBdLG

  • 6 million issued certificates.
  • 4,25 million unexpired certificates.
  • IdenTrust is used on 2,0 % of all sites (market share: 9,7 %).


Hmm, I think I now understand why IdenTrust wanted to cross-sign Let’s Encrypts root. Such a market share is nice… :smile:



Daily Activity has not been updated since 25 July (6,49 M). Now more than 7,1 million certificates have been issued.


Unexpired Certificates has not been updated since 27 July (4,33 M).


Checking now, I see both charts updated as of Jul 29. Feel free to tag me or another staff member in the future if those graphs seem stuck for more than a couple of days.


Yes, both are now updated again. Thanks. :slight_smile:

And what an update, half a million unexpired certificates. :+1:


Maybe a cronjob could help here so that the graphs are updated automatically?


The charts are already updated automatically, but sometimes they fall behind, for instance due to DB slowness.


eh what? we have 4,8M unexpired so almost 10 times what you said, maybe you got the numbers wrong?


No. It went up from 4,34 M to 4,88 M, that is (a little more than) half a million new unexpired certificates. Those were the update. :wink:
