Add location or organization to certificate


#1

Is it possible to add the “location” or “organization” to certs issued by Letsencrypt?


#2

Let’s Encrypt is only going to sign certificates for things it can verify automatically, as such I think it’s unlikely ( in the near term) that it’s going to automatically verify either location or organisation.

As @serverco said, we are only going to do things that can be entirely automated.

There are basically 3 kinds of certs: Domain Validation (DV), Organizational Validation (OV), and Extended Validation (EV). The latter two include organization information, but we only know how to automated the first one - so we only issue DV. This is also why OV and EV tend to be more expensive from commercial providers - verification of organizational information takes more work and it’s at least partially manual.
