I’m a big fan of Let’s Encrypt, an organization committed to encrypting all web traffic by proving free security certificates.
I’m also a big fan of transparency, so when LE published a summary of their financial information recently, my regard for their efforts clicked up another notch.
Highlights from LE’s financial information post:
- Let’s Encrypt will require about $2.9M USD to operate in 2017.
- The majority of LE’s funding comes from corporate sponsorships.
- You can donate to Let’s Encrypt using PayPal.
For the record, this web site (boot13.com) and all my other secure sites now use Let’s Encrypt certificates.
