EV SSL Certificate

SSL (secure socket layer) refers to a standard protocol that creates a secure conduit for transmitting information between a web browser and a web server. This makes it extremely difficult for transmissions to be intercepted. SSL assures the reliability and confidentiality of information by showing a padlock in the website. With an SSL certificate, you can increase visitor’s confidence and protect the organization and its brand. SSL Explained:

EV (Extended Validation) Certificate:

Extended Validation Certificates are a special type of X.509 certificate which require more extensive investigation of the requesting entity by the certificate authority before they are issued. Extended Validation SSL Certificates give high security Web browsers information to clearly identify a Web site’s organizational identity. For example, if you use Microsoft Internet Explorer 7 to go to a Web site secured with an SSL Certificate that meets the Extended Validation Standard, IE7 will cause the URL address bar to turn green. A display next to the green bar will toggle between the organization name listed in the certificate and the Certificate Authority (Symantec, GeoTrust, Thawte). Firefox and Opera also support green bar identity with later browser versions. Older browsers generally display Extended Validation SSL Certificates with the same security symbols as existing SSL Certificates. Extended Validation Certificates, basically, operate the same as SSL, but those organizations that request them are subject to greater scrutiny before they are received. This can give visitor additional evidence that the organization that they are dealing with is legitimate and that they are interacting with a website that is, in fact, the property of the organization
