What is Extended Validation?

Extended Validation (EV) certificates are single-domain SSL (Secure Sockets Layer)
certificates that offer the highest degree of authentication and SSL protection.
To ensure this, they require more evaluation and documentation checks for
applicant websites than other certificate types.

DigiCert EV SSL certificates include a manual validation step to confirm:

  • The legal, physical, and operational existence of the entity
  • That the entity has properly authorized the issuance of the certificate
  • That the entity has exclusive right to use the domain specified
  • The identity of the entity matches official records

Today's Threat Landscape Demands the EV Approach to SSL

What Does Extended Validation Look Like?

The green branded address bar is the most highly recognizable sign of
an EV-secured webpage. It shows visitors your website is a safe place
to enter their sensitive data.
