As an Enterprise Linux Professionals project, we created a browser client for Let’s Encrypt. This resource is found at https://certificateautomation.com. Please go have a look and try it out. We are in beta until the 5th of November. (Security guys will understand that reference.)
The purpose of this utility is to make Let’s Encrypt accessible to non-Linux users and the Linux Administrators who do not want to try to explain it so that somebody can get a certificate. It is our hope that this utility will serve as an invitation for anybody to manage their certificates, from the lone web designer to the corporate registrars.
We are adding an additional resource soon that is a development server so that people can test the environment and we can add new features as they become available through Let’s Encrypt which uses the staging server.
If you see any way that we might improve this product, please let us know. Eventually we will charge a management fee based on the number of certificates a customer manages through our dashboard, even if they are not registered through Let’s Encrypt. This should assist people in the transition from other CA’s to Let’s Encrypt. (Details provided on the site.) A large portion of the money generated by this project will be donated to Let’s Encrypt. We are also prepared to provide a generous amount of management vouchers to Let’s Encrypt and The Linux Foundation to distribute or use in any way they wish. (I look forward to discussing those details with the appropriate person.)
A lot of time and work went into this project. This has been in the works for almost a year now. All credit goes to the Enterprise Linux Professionals Security Team for the long hours and expertise that they put into this project.
