Let's Encrypt

http://letsencrypt.com
Command-line client for acquiring a trusted free SSL certificate from Let's Encrypt

The Let's Encrypt client is a tool to automatically receive and install X.509 certificates to enable TLS on servers. The client will interoperate with the Let's Encrypt Certificate Authority (CA) which will be issuing browser-trusted certificates for free. It has a command-line client (written in Python) which handles requesting, acquiring and downloading a valid, trusted SSL certificate for any single domain name as well as handling the domain name ownership verification and configuration of the httpd to automatically use the newly issued certificate. Let's Encrypt is designed to challenge the root CA model by making it free and as simple as possible to get a valid and trusted domain-name level certificate.

This project and software is in testing mode and it is not recommended for production use until otherwise stated. This is also why the letsencrypt.com website is not yet itself available via https!
