CACert

Mae's Days

In an unusual move, I’m going to post entries two days in a row. But this one is mostly altruistic. :)
I’m taking this space to promote CACert, an initiative to provide free SSL certificates for anyone who wants one.
Unfortunately, their root certificate isn’t included in mainstream browsers — yet. But all the same, it’s a lot better than self-signed certificates. Personally I use them several places.

  1. Hi,

    looked at that too a while back. Don't think they will get thier act together and get the CA in the browsers.

    If you are looking for a cert generator. You may as well make your own. I suggest tinyCA for family use (if you use unix it is available as a debian and rpm package).
