Free SSL with Let's Encrypt – Dot Net North – July 2018

Presented by Mike Irving.

Modern browsers are now warning people about insecure websites, and Google may soon treat insecure listings in a negative way in Search Engine Results. This isn’t just a Google thing, by-default Apple now blocks Apps from communicating by non-encrypted means.

Up until recently the process of securing websites has been a costly, manual, and often painful process, but in this session Mike Irving will demonstrate Let’s Encrypt – a free, automated and open Certificate Authority; he will talk us through the SSL Certificate Process, explain how Let’s Encrypt works, discuss the options for Windows users, and then perform a live demo, securing an IIS website on an Azure Virtual Machine in a matter of seconds!
