It’s amazing to see that Facebook is becoming a part of LetsEncrypt financially, thing is, I feel that the NSA can look at Facebook’s data with ease and I hope that Facebook doesn’t make it’s way into LetsEncrypt in a technical manner so data from LE isn’t potentially seen by you know… “those guys”… I’m not trying to start a fight or anything, just something to think about.
For a follow up. I think Facebook is doing great things outside of it’s own company. I don’t think that Facebook is bad in any way.
I really don’t think simply being a sponsor gives you any leverage over the project like that. It didn’t seem to affect Mozilla when Google was funding them, so I don’t see why Let’s Encrypt having Facebook as a sponsor would change anything.
No no I completely understand. Sorry if I mis-lead you. I just don’t want them to be so into the project they have access over everything. I’ll delete this thread, sorry.
wow great news
congrats LE !
With this new sponsor, Let’s Encrypt has now a total funding of about $1.6 Millions per year.
This is huge!
but is it really enough ? hopefully more sponsors come on board !
I believe that Let’s Encrypt can operate with a lot less than that so I hope it is enough.
EDIT: why are all these two year old posts getting bumped today? I keep trying to answer or answering ancient threads...
