Let's Encrypt has been a success for the open source community and for privacy in today's world. Running a certificate authority has a variety of challenges and maintaining an infrastructure with a goal of openness and security has required dedication and flexibility of a small team to turn techniques that "work in theory" to "work in practice." Now passing it's one year anniversary as a free, automated, and open certificate authority, this talk will cover Let's Encrypt's approach to mitigate security threats including physical separation of duties, network partitioning, and change control procedures.
