Free SSL with letsencrypt

Dear all

I recently tried to obtain a free SSL certificate with [Let's Encrypt.](https://letsencrypt.org) It is still in

public beta (although they have already issued their millionth
certificate). I wrote a little guide for a simple single instance of
DHIS here (including autorenewal):

Best regards

David

Thanks, David - this certainly looks very interesting.

Regards,

Knut

Thanks David,

For those of you looking for another (probably less secure) free option, there is also WoSign https://www.wosign.com/English/freeSSL.htm

I’ve actually been using it a lot with good success.

Thanks David. That's really useful. Removing credit card
transactions from the process of getting certs signed is going to be
very valuable.

Note from here (https://community.letsencrypt.org/t/certificates-for-us-sanctioned-countries/1223)
that there might still be some issues in some US sanctioned
jurisdictions but this is great progress.

And this Chinese supplier might well be the way around any issues
arising from US sanctions :slight_smile:

Thanks Bob and Steven for the insight, I updated the gist with a
remark on this potential political issue.
