Let's Encrypt: A Free, Automated, and Open CA

Talk title:

It's time for the Web security and privacy to take a big step forward
by adopting encryption via TLS for all traffic. Let's Encrypt
(letsencrypt.org) is new free, automated, and open certificate
authority created in order to help the Web take this step. This
presentation will cover how Let's Encrypt works and why it works the
way it does. We'll also talk a bit about how Let's Encrypt got started
and plans for the future.

Join us afterwards at The Storehouse Pub where we'll continue the
discussion over drinks and/or food. The Storehouse Pub is located at
69 W. 23rd Street.
