Letâs Encrypt has reached a point where weâre ready to announce our launch schedule.
- First certificate: Week of July 27, 2015
- General availability: Week of September 14, 2015
We will issue the first end entity certificates under our root under tightly controlled circumstances. No cross-signature will be in place yet, so the certificates will not validate unless our root is installed in client software. As we approach general availability we will issue more and more certificates, but only for a pre-approved set of domains. This limited issuance period will give us time to further ensure that our systems are secure, compliant, and scalable.
