I haven't kept a close watch on the list recently but SSL emails are also forwarded to my personal email so I saw the recent post concerning EZ Proxy and SSL but thought I would throw this out, don't know if it has already seen this list.

https://letsencrypt.org

Get free certificates through Let's Encrypt letsencrypt.org.  As of last December, I believe, they had finished their testing phase.  The default system works best with Ubuntu but it can be used with any distribution or OS.  And there is support for Apache and NginX.  The certificate is only good for 90 days but the system can be set up to renew automatically each 90 days.

I am still, in my spare time, trying to get this working with CentOS and NginX.  I think this is or will be a great project to use and support.

From their site:

"
The key principles behind Letís Encrypt are:
Free: Anyone who owns a domain name can use Letís Encrypt to obtain a trusted certificate at zero cost.
Automatic: Software running on a web server can interact with Letís Encrypt to painlessly obtain a certificate, securely configure it for use, and automatically take care of renewal.
Secure: Letís Encrypt will serve as a platform for advancing TLS security best practices, both on the CA side and by helping site operators properly secure their servers.
Transparent: All certificates issued or revoked will be publicly recorded and available for anyone to inspect.
Open: The automatic issuance and renewal protocol will be published as an open standard that others can adopt.
Cooperative: Much like the underlying Internet protocols themselves, Letís Encrypt is a joint effort to benefit the community, beyond the control of any one organization.
