SSL TLS Essentials. Securing the Web free

Transport Layer Security (TLS) is a cryptographic protocol designed to provide communications security over a computer network. The protocol is widely used in applications such as email, instant messaging, and voice over IP, but its use in securing HTTPS remains the most publicly visible.

Let's Encrypt is a non-profit certificate authority that provides free, automated, and open-source SSL/TLS certificates. These certificates are used to encrypt and secure web communications, providing privacy and data integrity to internet users.

The main value of Let's Encrypt is its ability to make encryption more accessible and affordable. By offering free SSL/TLS certificates, Let's Encrypt makes it easier and more cost-effective for website owners to secure their websites and protect the privacy of their users.

In addition to being free, Let's Encrypt certificates are also easy to obtain and install. The certificates are issued through an automated process, making it possible for website owners to obtain a certificate in minutes, rather than waiting for days or weeks for manual processing.

* Domain name creation and transfer is free for the first year, then renewals are charged at the annual price of the extension from the following list: .com, .net, .biz, .info, .org, .name, .fr, .re, .eu, .be, .es, .it, .de, .at,,,, .nl, .us, .ca, .cz, .ch, .in, .lt, .dk, .pm, .so, .se, .yt, .tf , .wf, .pt, .pl, .ovh, .xyz. Not valid for extensions that include free transfer.

With our web hosting plans, you get a free Let's Encrypt SSL certificate included, which is activated by default. This means you do not need to request a certificate - HTTPS is immediately applied to your website.

As part of our continuing mission to reduce cybersecurity risk across U.S. critical infrastructure partners and state, local, tribal, and territorial governments, CISA has compiled a list of free cybersecurity tools and services to help organizations further advance their security capabilities. This living repository includes cybersecurity services provided by CISA, widely used open source tools, and free tools and services offered by private and public sector organizations across the cybersecurity community. CISA will implement a process for organizations to submit additional free tools and services for inclusion on this list in the future.

After making progress on the measures above, organizations can use the free services and tools listed below to mature their cybersecurity risk management. These resources are categorized according to the four goals outlined in CISA Insights: Implement Cybersecurity Measures Now to Protect Against Critical Threats:

In this tutorial, the 'Numinous Travel' company has set up its Windows Server 2016 server and configured the Essentials Experience role on it. Now they want to configure Anywhere Access but before they can do that they need to get a valid certificate from an official Certificate Authority and because they want it for free they are going to get a Lets Encrypt certificate (Let's Encrypt - Free SSL/TLS Certificates).

There have been some hurdles that impeded adoption of HTTPS. For a long time, it was perceived as being too computationally expensive to use for all traffic, but with modern hardware that has not been the case for some time. The SSL protocol and early versions of the TLS protocol only support the use of one web site certificate per IP address, but that restriction was lifted in TLS with the introduction of a protocol extension called SNI (Server Name Indication), which is now supported in most browsers. The cost of obtaining a certificate from a certificate authority also deterred adoption, but the introduction of free services like Let's Encrypt has eliminated that barrier. Today there are fewer hurdles than ever before.

It is possible to generate your own certificate to test a HTTPS configuration out, but you will need a certificate signed by a trusted CA before exposing the service to users. For many uses, a free CA is a good starting point. When searching for a CA, you will encounter different levels of certification offered. The most basic, Domain Validation (DV), certifies the owner of the certificate controls a domain. More costly options are Organization Validation (OV) and Extended Validation (EV), which involve the CA doing additional checks to verify the organization requesting the certificate. Although the more advanced options result in a more positive visual indicator of security in the browser, it may not be worth the extra cost for many.

Besides securing cookies, application should use X-Frame-Options to avoid clickjacking attacks, X-XSS-Protection to mitigate XSS attacks, Strict-Transport-Security to tell browser to use only HTTPS, etc.

Our WooCommerce hosting partners offer free SSL certificates for WordPress users that can be installed with only a few clicks, or often no installation if you purchase a web domain with the hosting package.

Now comes securing the cryptographic module itself. The Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS) has identified four levels of increasing security in FIPS 140-2 that can be applied to the module, each corresponding to the commensurate threat level:

Both paid accounts and free trial accounts can use Fastly-managed certificates. When Fastly manages your certificates, you use the Fastly web interface or API to select the CA from which Fastly should procure your TLS certificates. Fastly then procures DV certificates from the authority you've chosen. To complete a certificate request, you must prove that you control your domains by modifying DNS records. Free trial accounts must use the Let's Encrypt certification authority.

SSL stands for Secure Socket Layer. It is a security protocol that conveys your communications over the Internet in an encrypted form. SSL encoding is commonly employed by eCommerce websites to protect sensitive information such as credit card numbers or personal data. SSL certificates ensure that information is delivered to the server for which it was intended, without falling into the hands of third parties who could tamper with the data. You'll recognize sites that have a SSL certificate by the URL https, rather than the unsecured http.
