What is extended validation—and why does it matter?
Most lower-authentication certificates require only that you prove ownership of the domain (DV) or validate your identity at an organizational level (OV). DigiCert EV SSL certificates
add additional validation steps and offer the highest level of authentication to safeguard your brand and protect your users.
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
