Extended Validation (EV) SSL Certificates

Advanced Features, Renowned Trust Indicators, and Premium Encryption

In the world of SSL/TLS, Extended Validation SSL certificates are the gold standard, or maybe we can call it the "green" standard. This complete SSL solution not only encrypts your website, safely protecting user information from prying eyes, but it also comes with a variety of extra premium features that have proven to boost trust & clearly demonstrate that you are, in fact, someone safe to do business with. The main way EV certs do this is by way of what we call the green address bar! Granted, the only thing green about the EV address bar nowadays is the font. But the name just kind of stuck.

Not just anyone can obtain an EV SSL certificate, which activates this globally trusted & recognized green bar (especially no malicious or fake site). Before issuing your EV SSL certificate, your Certificate Authority (CA) has to first complete a thorough validation process to verify & ensure that you're actually a legitimate business. So, if you're a real business and you're looking to maximize trust, boost conversion and align yourself with the big shots of the Internet – ya' know, the companies that people already know and trust – then EV is the only way to go. After all, you're trying to win, right?

How do I get an EV SSL?

Since you're a real business and you're working with The SSL Store™, you're golden! The validation process is designed to stop fake companies, not real ones. If you are a registered business in your state or with your local government, obtaining an EV certificate is a breeze! Once you complete your EV SSL purchase, you'll be guided through the validation process where the CA will simply need to verify a few things about your business. The best way to expedite this process is to make sure you use the CORRECT spelling of your company name. Make sure to include your corporate identifiers such as, LLC or Inc. exactly as it was when you registered your business, commas and everything! Also, make sure to list your main phone number, and that it could be found in most public databases. If you can do that, you'll be well on your way. If you have any issues, we have many validation specialists standing by that can help you with any part of the process. In many cases, we have gotten EVs issued in the same day.

EV Green Bar

Business Registration – your company must be officially registered with your government.

Operational Existence – the Certificate Authority (CA) will look to verify that your organization has existed for more than 3 years. If your organization has not been in existence for more than 3 years, additional proof of operational status will be required, such as:

  • Dun & Bradstreet listing
  • Professional/Legal Option Letter (POL)
  • Or a simple Bank confirmation letter

Address Authentication – the registered organization must have a verifiable physical address and business presence in their respective country/state.

Telephone Verification – the Certificate Authority (CA) must pull an active telephone number from an acceptable telephone directory in order to complete a verification call with the company (The most popular directories include YellowPages, Hoovers, Scoot.co.uk, Dun and Bradstreet, BBB.org – but other regional telephone directories or industry directories are also acceptable).

Powerful Encryption Strength

What good would an SSL certificate be if it didn't encrypt? EV SSL certificates provide powerful encryption that meets or exceeds all CAB Forum and NIST standards. That means 256-bit AES symmetric encryption, a 2048-bit RSA signature key, or you have the option of Elliptic Curve Cryptography, which is lighter and faster than its counterparts. Encryption is what protects any communication between your web server and your visitors' browsers. You'll never have to worry about your HTTPS connections with an EV SSL certificate.

Isn't EV SSL cost-prohibitive?

No, it doesn't have to be. We have EV SSL certificates starting under $100. And as we've discussed, these aren't sunken costs, these are investments. Even if EV only nets you one or two extra customers, it's paid for itself.

Isn't it difficult to get an EV certificate?

As long as you have your ducks in a row you can get one in as little as a day. We recommend getting a Professional Opinion Letter together, as that satisfies several requirements at once.

Is the green bar worth it?

Absolutely. Remember, impressions are formed in a tenth of a second. Do you want to rely on your customers looking for a padlock or would you rather hit them over the head with your identity?

Does EV provide stronger encryption than other types of SSL?

No. This is a common misconception, but anyone who tells you EV is stronger is lying to you. Industry standards require certain thresholds for encryption and hashing, as such encryption strength is generally the same across all certificates, though depending on your customers' browsers, actual encryption strength may vary. Don't worry, it would take a super computer thousands of years to crack industry standard encryption.
