CertBot - a tool for making HTTPS certificates work automatically

CertBot (actually Certbot or certbot, so not inherently a twikiword) is software designed to keep Let's Encrypt (letsencrypt) certificates automatically up-to-date, without human drudgery.

Conceptually, other certificate vendors could arrange to be clients of certbot. Therefore, arguably, if you have https servers which use Let's Encrypt certificates it is better to refer to the usage as certbot than Let's Encrypt.

It will remain to be seen whether any other certificate vendors end up being certbot-compatible.

(Or perhaps instead other vendors will develop certbot rivals).

It will also remain to be seen whether anyone other than the original page author/creator updates this page with further information, or, more usefully, further links to reliable, enduring, information elsewhere.
