A salesperson from a commercial SSL provider recently contacted me to learn why I had stopped renewing certificates with them, so I let him know that I had decided to go with Let's Encrypt instead.
Upon learning this, the guy felt compelled to tell me that #letsencrypt had a bad track record and should not be used for e-commerce.
Did he show that track record to you?
@teteatmastodon No, he was probably referring to Let's Encrypt issuing certificates like paypal.com.scamsite.net.
aah. If I got it right that CA you mentioned is more strict when choosing people they give certs to, and that guy said that Let's Encrypt is worse because it's more open, right?
@teteatmastodon Yeah, that's pretty much the gist of it.
Long live the revolution!
Have a nice day.
