Let's Encrypt -- What launching a free CA looks like

Let's Encrypt is a new free and automated certificate authority,
that entered closed beta in October and has already issued a large number of
valid certificates. This talk will provide a short overview of
how the Let's Encrypt client and server software work, and explore
statistics gathered during our closed beta and launch period.

Let's Encrypt is a new certificate authority that is being launched by a
collaboration between EFF, Mozilla, Cisco, Akamai, IdenTrust, and a team
at the University of Michigan. It will issue certificates for free,
using a new automated protocol called ACME for verification of domain
control and issuance.

This talk will describe the features of the CA and available clients at
launch; discuss ongoing feature development in both the official server and client;
and share statistics on the closed beta and launch periods, as well as looking
at our place within the CA ecosystem post launch.
