Let’s Encrypt is now browser trusted

Let’s Encrypt:

We’re pleased to announce that we’ve received cross-signatures from IdenTrust, which means that our certificates are now trusted by all major browsers. This is a significant milestone since it means that visitors to websites using Let’s Encrypt certificates can enjoy a secure browsing experience with no special configuration required.

Both Let’s Encrypt intermediate certificates, Let’s Encrypt Authority X1 and Let’s Encrypt Authority X2, received cross-signatures. Web servers will need to be configured to serve the appropriate cross-signature certificate as part of the trust chain. The Let’s Encrypt client will handle this automatically.

If you are unfamiliar with the “Let’s Encrypt” project, it is a free certificate authority that is designed to take away the cost barriers to generating SSL certifications.
