UPDATE: Tune in to the livestream here! There’s a growing trend of open-source developers live coding through streaming platforms like Twitch, and we’re excited to jump in.
Certbot is one of EFF’s many tech tools. It offers all domain owners and website administrators a convenient, free way to move their websites from insecure HTTP to secure HTTPS. Gone are the days of expensive certificates that are hard to configure—Certbot deploys Let’s Encrypt certificates with easy-to-follow, interactive instructions based on your webserver and operating system. Let’s Encrypt is a certificate authority (CA) operated by the Internet Security Research Group. CAs play a crucial identification and verification role in the web encryption ecosystem—and Let’s Encrypt is one of the world’s largest, having issued over 100 million certificates to over 7 million unique domains.
