SKUDONET Application Delivery Controller (ADC) can be used to manage Let’s Encrypt certificates. Let’s Encrypt is a free, open, and automated certificate authority (CA) that provides digital certificates proving a site’s authenticity and encryption.
SKUDONET ADC uses the ACME protocol to communicate with Let’s Encrypt and obtain certificates for hosts (e.g., www.skudonet.com).
