Letsencrypt: The new, shiny, free CA. It's a miracle.
As HipChat requires SSL encryption there should be a way to easily retrieve a certificate for a newly created HipChat Server instance.
What I'd expect:
- When setting up HipChat Server you can enter your host and domain name
- After this there's an option to insert the SSL certificate with Key and Chain
- At this point there's an option which says "Use letsencrypt for certificate creation"
- A warning will be displayed showing requirements (e.g. public dns record must exist)
As certificates only last 3 months a check is implemented
This check will also update the certificate if required (e.g. 7 days before it expires)
