Session Title: ACME - Let's Encrypt Your Origin


Speaker: Stephen Ludin




Let’s Encrypt, the non-profit Certificate Authority run by the Internet Security Research Group went into a public beta last fall and general availability this past April. Since then they have already issued over five million certificates making them one of the largest CAs on the planet. Akamai makes it easy to use an LE cert on your customer facing site, but what is involved in obtaining a certificate for your origin or your home site? See a live demo of requesting, validating, and installing a Let’s Encrypt cert. For the remaining 59 minutes we will discuss the ACME protocol which is the API that powers Let’s Encrypt, tools that are available to obtain and managed you certificate, and libraries that make it easy for you to write your own tools.
