    EFF (Electronic Frontier Foundation) has partnered with Mozilla, Cisco, and Akamai to offer free HTTPS/SSL certificates.

    The launch is scheduled for the mid of 2015, so if you considering to buy a SSL certificate, it might be a good time to consider otherwise.

    Website of the project: https://letsencrypt.org
    Open source is located at: https://github.com/letsencrypt/lets-encrypt-preview

    Once its alive, certificate installation will be as easy as typing these two lines on any Linux machine:

    > sudo apt-get install lets-encrypt
    > lets-encrypt example.com

    The software will also automatically renew the certificate when it is about to expire.

    You guys must give a try to COMODO SSL too. They are giving free 3 months SSL. Working very well for me.

    Usually I prefer to visit CheapSSLCouponCode to get free ssl cert as well as to find discount coupons of diverse ssl, web hosting and domain registrar providers.

    Yes, Comodo gives maximum month validity for free ssl certificate as well as lowest price for ssl products.

    Awesome! Can't wait to experiment with these upon it's release. This will indefinitely be great for the consumer but a big downfall in sales for SSL companies.

    very interesting. No doubt there will be some reason to keep paid certs alive though.
