Extended validation (EV) SSL certificates use the highest level of authentication & were specifically created to boost and maintain customer confidence in eCommerce through a rigorous verification process and specific, EV certificate-only browser cues like the green address bar. EV certificates incorporate some of the highest standards for identity assurance to establish the legitimacy of online entities. We put applicant websites through rigorous evaluation procedures and meticulous documentation checks to confirm their authenticity and ownership.
How Does It Look Like?
Green = Trust
When validating a website for an EV certificate, DigiCert complies with a process that is strictly defined by the CA/Browser Forum. In fact, DigiCert is a founding member of the CA/Browser Forum.
As part of the process, one of our validation specialists contacts the requesting organization to confirm that they requested the certificate and that the applicant is authorized to receive the certificate on behalf of the organization. By maintaining this human element in the validation process, fraudulent or phishing-related activity is much easier to detect.
- Verifying the legal, physical, and operational existence of the entity
- Verifying that the identity of the entity matches official records
- Verifying that the entity has exclusive right to use the domain specified
