Would be nice to add support in the Incredible GUI, for automatic free CA-signed TLS certificate for every incrediblepbx instance.

These free certs are available from the new Certificate Authority, LetsEncrypt.org, are fully revokeable, and would work without complaint in the Incredible GUI web interface with a padlock, and SIP endpoint tests would pass as well, no complaints of running a self signed cert.

Same CA signed TLS cert that you normally would pay $20/year from Thawte, GeoTrust, Comodo...

More info and command line examples for getting/revoking free CA signed certs from LetsEncrypt..

Nice idea- Let’s Encrypt - System Requirements
The Let’s Encrypt Client presently only runs on Unix-ish OSes that include Python 2.6 or 2.7; Python 3.x support will be added after the Public Beta launch. The client requires root access in order to write to /etc/letsencrypt, /var/log/letsencrypt, /var/lib/letsencrypt; to bind to ports 80 and 443 (if you use the standalone plugin) and to read and modify webserver configurations (if you use the apache or nginx plugins). If none of these apply to you, it is theoretically possible to run without root privileges, but for most users who want to avoid running an ACME client as root, either letsencrypt-nosudo or simp_le are more appropriate choices.

The Apache plugin currently requires a Debian-based OS with augeas version 1.0; this includes Ubuntu 12.04+ and Debian 7+.

I received notification and thanks from user @tm1000 saying that this new feature is called TLS setup wizard module, and it's "on deck". Should be available very soon.

EDIT: I received notification the TLS Setup Wizard module for FreePBX is competed and working
Download it here: https://github.com/FreePBX/certman/tree/master for FreePBX 13.0
