Article Rating: 1 / 5 Votes: 9

Extended Validation Certificates are available to government agencies, corporations, and non-corporate entities such as sole proprietorships, general partnerships, and associations in accordance with the guidelines developed by the CA/B Forum.  For those eligible, the application process for receiving an Extended Validation Certificate from one of the recognized Certificate Authorities such as Network Solutions® is both deeper and more thorough than existing certificate-issuance procedures. Companies applying for Extended Validation SSL Certificates are required to provide far more detailed information about their business, their Articles of Incorporation, and so on. Validation and confirmation of this additional data enhances the authority of and consumer confidence in the certificates and also makes it all but impossible for fraudulent or criminal applicants to receive a certificate.
