Type:  White Paper
Length:  14 pages

Extended Validation (EV) certificates were launched in January 2007. EV certificates are an effort to define a standard for a high assurance SSL/TLS certificate and create a new trust foundation. The EV Guidelines are managed by the leading browsers and certification authorities (CAs) through the CA/Browser Forum, and have been since launch.

This paper will discuss:

  • What the objectives are for the implementation of EV certificates
  • How the EV Guidelines set the standard for SSL/TLS certificate issuance
  • How the browsers support EV certificates and display trusted sites to browser users
  • How EV certificates mitigate phishing, Man-in-the-Middle (MITM) attacks, provide site acceptance and increase secure transactions.
