"Let's encrypt" is a must not a blue sky

I don’t know if you heard about this https://letsencrypt.org/ , but it seems it will be a big deal with Akamai, Cisco, EFF and Mozilla backing it up. So where’s Stallman now? :slight_smile:

I trust the *min team will do something to integrate this into the control panels as it could be a game changer for the the certificates stupid food-chain.

Cheers (btw it’s a simple command with “simple” requirements so maybe it’s time to add a big new feature to the classic ones, DNS/website/mail/ftp/DAV/etc when managing a domain, I think it should be there).


Hmm, that does look interesting. I’ll make sure Jamie knows about that. It looks like it’s still a little ways off from an official release, but we’ll review that to see what all it does and what would go into integrating that into Virtualmin.


But you can test it already; it’s not like in alpha or something… I also think you should be one of the first adopters, there is no reason not to. Maybe get in the leading developer team/parteners/testers :slight_smile:

Things are becoming very serious about https and hsts for Mozilla https://blog.mozilla.org/security/2015/04/30/deprecating-non-secure-http/

SSL/TLS certificates will become no longer a simple “option”. I trust you will do everything in your power to give people an alternative for the classic payed certificates.

Please let me remind you about the File Manager and Chrome/Chromium family of browser where due to Google dropping Java we lost a (not excellent anyway) feature in the panel, not solved even now.

How will HTTPS / TLS be handled for “shared IP addresses”??
