Are there any providers of free SSL certificates?

Does it include *.domain.com certificates as well?

It is more for security rather than authentication, and avoiding invalid certificate errors.

  • If it was "for security" then you'd use your own self-signed cert.

    StartSSL.com give free certs for non-commercial use, not wildcard though (unless you fill in paperwork and send them $70 or something like that).

    The CACert one does, but it's much less widely accepted than StartSSL.

  • Is the CACert root certificate included in the main browsers, or do Mozilla etc want something up front to include it? When I logged into the site their cert was not recognized.

  • On a side note is it possible to retrieve the clear text of a certificate, root certificate included for verification and comparison?

    However, you can keep ordering free certs for as many subdomains on the same domain as you require... just a little bit of extra work but not a big deal..

  • startssl is much more widely accepted by browsers than CACerts. And as @twain mention... because it's free... you can get StartSSL certis for as many as subdomains as you want... so in a sense you can use it as a wildcard... just a lil bit extra work needed.

    For me... it hardly takes around 5 mins to install a certi from StartSSL on a subdomain for a already verified domain in my startssl account.
