Explain this a little more for me…
What is SSL?
SSL stands for Secure Sockets Layer. It is a protocol which creates a secure connection between a client and the server over which to send information. SSL works by using a cryptographic system that uses two keys to encrypt data.
What is Let’s Encrypt?
Let’s Encrypt is a free, automated, and open certificate authority brought to you by the non-profit Internet Security Research Group (ISRG).
