Expect-CT Reports, full visibility of your certificates
Expect-CT depends Certificate Transparency to ensure absolute transparency in the Web PKI
Certificate Transparency is a recent requirement that all CAs log certificates into a public ledger when they are issued. If certificates are not logged into the 'CT logs' then modern browsers will refuse to accept them.
In the event a browser refuses to accept a certificate because it does not meet the 'CT Qualification' criteria, a user will be prevented from accessing your website. Expect-CT reports allow the browser to send a report when this happens.
Certificate Transparency is already a requirement in most mainstream browser so sites already have to meet the CT Qualification criteria. Expect-CT reports allow you to know if your visitors are experiencing issues when visiting your site, issues that you previously wouldn't have known about.
