Certificates with Extended Validation

To validate order for certificate with extended validation all Certification Authorities will follow the same detailed issuance requirements which aim to:

  • Establish the legal identity as well as the operational and physical presence of website owner;
  • Establish that the applicant is the domain name owner or has exclusive control over the domain name; and
  • Confirm the identity and authority of the individuals acting for the website owner, and that documents pertaining to legal obligations are signed by an authorized officer.

Only certificates with extended validation will trigger the green bar in high-security web browsers.

Please visit the official site of CA/Browser Forum  which is the regulatory body governing the issuance of EV SSL Certificates to find more information.
