With regard to Are there technical disadvantages in using free ssl certificates? it has been highlighted by some that StartSSL is not a trustworthy CA, and I was wondering if Let’s Encrypt is the same.
I have been looking at using ZeroSSL to obtain a Let’s Encrypt certificate but I cannot seem to find anything online about how they rate compared to paid CAs for DV certificates?
I am not asking about comparisons between DV certificates as asked in the proposed duplicate. I am asking about whether Let’s Encrypt is as trustworthy as say... Comodo
or Verisign (scrubbed due to answer given).
StartSSL is not trusted, yet ZeroSSL says
Issued certificates are supported by all major browsers and operating systems
and I can’t find anything which backs this up
