5th of July Foundation firmly supports the right to use encryption technology without backdoors or interference. Ideally all communication via the Internet should be encrypted.
We are therefore happy to announce that we have just started using Let´s Encrypt to issue the certificates that we use on our https web servers. Let us cite from their own presentation:
“Let’s Encrypt is a new Certificate Authority: It’s free, automated, and open.”
Let’s encrypt is supported by Electronic Frontier Foundation and many major Internet corporations and organisations.
P.S. Our resident blogger HAX often comments on the politics of encryption and questions relating to freedom of communications. Read him! And yes, “he” uses a certificate from Let’s Encrypt since today also!
