About SSL and Let’s Encrypt

SSL - Secure Socket Layer

SSL (Secure Socket Layer) is used to encrypt the data transmission over Internet.
Nowadays, in most circumstance, data encryption is done by TLS (Transport Layer Security).

By its nature, Internet is comprised of ISP, IXP (Internet Exchange Point), ICP (Internet Content Provider), and other service provider (e.g. hosting company), via routers and switching hubs.

Under no encryption, each routers can detect data during transmission.
To protect some sensitive information (e.g. login), the first generation SSL was developed by Netscape.

With the technological advance, SSL was developed from 1.0 to 2.0, 2.0 to 3.0, then TLS 1.0, TLS 1.1 and 1.2.
Nowadays, TLS 1.2 is recognized as the latest encryption standard.

Per growing demand on privacy, Technology giants began to recommend SSL Everywhere, and subsequently forms Let’s Encrypt.
