- Automatic: The process is simplified by making everything automated. This means that the SSL certificate is installed, setup and configured in just a couple of clicks.
- Secure: It will serve as a platform for advancing TLS security best practices.
- Transparent: All certificates issued or revoked will be publicly recorded and available for anyone to inspect.
