    It's now 2016...

    I think MS should start investing a little time in this because it's going to be a big part of the web going forward.

    That would be indeed great if there is toolset for automatic certificate renewal also for Azure websites not just Apache.

    The request message was malformed :: Error creating new authz :: Name is blacklisted :\ while using letsencrypt on my vm

    It would be pretty amazing to see Azure + Let's Encrypted integrated and Azure completely handle/manage the agent/renewal process.

    I also think this would be an Awesome feature. Even if MS rolled something out just like it for Azure sites. You know who I am and all my billing info so why not roll that into a free cert for things running in azure.

    Azure Web (and IIS) needs full ACME integration. There should be no need to install or renew certs manually, it should all be automatic.

    Let's Encrypt support in Azure should become as easy as ticking a single checkbox. Once set, it should request, install and auto-renew as necessary.

    Yes making letsencrypt easy to add to an azure website would be great. I do not have a secured website because it seems like to much of a hassle messing with certs. If you guys could make letsencrypt on azure as easy as a setting to encrypt a site in azure that would be awesome.

    I am happy to split these ideas up but I have recently had to renew a number of certificates on Azure for websites and cloud services.

    There needs to be an easy way to see all certificates in a subscription and potentially an alert capability for expiring certificates.

    A simple tool to create and apply domain verified certificates and renewals (or automated renewal similar to what has been proposed by Let's Encrypt.

    A deeper integration with a provider like godaddy to provide paid for enhanced verification certificates but with the same simple creation and renewal capability.

    Azure based tools for pfx creation and/or a secure store for private keys that can help automate the certificate process.

    Support for Let's Encrypt would make it easy for everyone to use SSL on their websites, even if this still required standard.

    It would be even better if Azure had it's own CA and was able to distribute and install SSL certificates for custom domains and automate the renewal process (with possible premuim offers for OV or EV certificates)

    Now that the EFF and Mozilla are backing the Let's Encrypt project to provide everyone free SSL certs, it would be great if you would permit free usage of SSL certs on Azure Websites.
