The Linux Foundation has announced it will host the Internet Security Research Group (ISRG) and its Let’s Encrypt project, a free, automated and open security certificate authority for the public’s benefit. Let’s Encrypt allows website owners to obtain security certificates within minutes, enabling a safer web experience.
“While the web has been a part of our lives for decades now, the data shared across networks is still at risk,” said Jim Zemlin, Executive Director at The Linux Foundation. “By hosting this important encryption project in a neutral forum we can accelerate the work towards a free, automated and easy security certification process that benefits millions of people around the world.”
