Let’s Encrypt is a certificate authority which provides people with the security certificates, needed for enabling HTTPS (SSL/TLS) for their websites.
An SSL certificate serves as a digital “passport” that allows data to be transmitted over secure networks – protecting financial and credit card transactions, signups, web access to mail, sensitive information and intranets. It authenticates and encrypts the data transferred through the website to the server.
