SSL certificate: How It Works
Let's Encrypt is the first SSL certificate provider that generates a free SSL certificate for website on their ACME server with the help of domain validation.
Your private keys are created in your browser and obtained through proxy
In order to provide free SSL certificate, Let’s Encrypt generates a private key in user’s browsers with the help of Web Cryptography API (it’s never disclosed). When the certificate is generated, the private key is erased from your browser. If your browser doesn’t work with Web Cryptography API for free HTTPS, they keys will be generated on a server with the help of the latest version of OpenSSL, obtained via free SSL proxy and never stored. To ensure total security, you should use the browser that offers client generation. Besides, you can use your own CSR for manual verification – the private key will be stored on your end.
