Let’s Encrypt has announced that it now has full support for IPv6. Let’s Encrypt is an automated, open certificate authority (CA) that launched earlier this year. They provide free X.509 certificates to anyone who owns a domain name. Their automated process is a lot easier than manually creating, validating, signing, installing, and renewing certificates.
Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) gives us many more available addresses (approximately 4.3 billion), and other technical benefits. With the increased use of IPv6 due to IPv4 addresses being exhausted, support for IPv6 by Let’s Encrypt is a critical step forward and will allow them to serve many more people and organizations.
