I've been looking for an SSL certificate signing authority that accepts Bitcoin.

On the trade site I saw that Exoware seems to offer them, but they only list prices in English pounds. Has anyone more details on this? Or know some other SSL cert authority that accepts Bitcoin?

http://www.startssl.com/ is offering free ones, but if you want a higher security than the free one, I guess you're stuck with mailing them, and asking about the exchange rate.

It's a way to verify the authenticity of a Website connection and to encrypt traffic through it: https://secure.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/wiki/Transport_Layer_Security

It prevents to get an annoying popup/screen when you visit a ssl self-signed encrypted site.

People who know about ssl know that they can mostly ignore the screen/popup. Other people get freaked out, thinking someone hacked the site and go away (at least don't trust it).

I know about the startssl service, was just wondering if there were attempts by people to offer these services for bitcoin as well.
