"Let’s Encrypt is a new Certificate Authority: It’s free, automated, and open."
The idea would be to integrate the openSUSE/SLE support into the Let's Encrypt Client.
"The Let's Encrypt Client is a tool to automatically receive and install X.509 certificates to<br> enable TLS on servers. The client will interoperate with the Let's Encrypt CA which will be<br> issuing browser-trusted certificates for free."
Let's Encrypt uses the Automated Certificate Management Environment (ACME) protocol<br> to distribute certificates easily. Part of this project idea would be to understand the protocol<br> in detail.
From the Let's Encrypt blog:
Nov 12, 2015 Public Beta: December 3, 2015 Let’s Encrypt will enter Public Beta on December 3rd, 2015. Once we’ve entered Public Beta our systems will be open to anyone who would like to request a certificate.
