Can I use LetsEncrypt to call web services?



I am trying to call a web service which requires me to authenticate using an X509 certificate. Could anyone tell me whether it’s possible to use LetsEncrypt for this? From the FAQ I would think not (only for web servers that use a domain, while I’m not trying to host a server, I’m developing a client application), but since LetsEncrypt does issue X509 certificates I figured it’s worth asking anyway.



No, Let’s Encrypt only issues DV (domain validation) certificates, i.e., for servers. It doesn’t issue client certificates I’m afraid.


Thank you Osiris! I’ll look elsewhere.
