On April 13th, Let’s Encrypt was awarded the prestigious Levchin Prize for contributions to real-world cryptography. The Levchin Prize is recognition that ISRG’s focused and efficient approach means that practically every person browsing the Web experiences the benefits of cryptography. But technical innovation is just one key to our success.
Our impact over the last ten years has been propelled by people continually contributing their time, energy, and financial resources. We’d like to particularly highlight the following longtime supporters for helping make our work possible.
There’s a lot more work to do to make the Internet more secure and privacy-respecting. If you or your company have an interest in continuing to build a better Internet for everyone, everywhere, please consider making a donation or becoming a sponsor.
“Let’s Encrypt has played a huge role in creating a more secure and privacy-respecting Web. The small-but-mighty team has shown that big, meaningful change is possible with focus, efficiency, and a global community of people working together. Winning the Levchin Prize is a well-earned testament to Let's Encrypt's hard work, commitment, and values.”
Jennifer Granick, ACLU
