Extended Validation SSL Certificates

EV SSL Certificates are intended for use in establishing secure data communication conduits via TLS/SSL protocols. The primary purposes of an EV SSL Certificate are to:

  • Provide reasonable assurance that the website or device is controlled by a specific legal entity identified in the certificate by name, address of Place of Business, Jurisdiction of Incorporation, and Registration Number; and 
  • Facilitate the exchange of keys to enable encrypted communication.

EV SSL help establish the legitimacy of a business claiming to operate a website by confirming its legal and physical existence; the identity and authority of the personnel involved in purchasing the certificate; and its control over the web domains included in the certificate.

EV SSL are issued in compliance with the “Guidelines for the Issuance and Management of Extended Validation Certificates” (EV Guidelines) published by the CA/Browser Forum.

The EV Guidelines are intended to provide enhanced assurance of identity of the Subscriber by enforcing uniform and detailed validation procedures across all EV-issuing CAs worldwide. QuoVadis is a member of the CA/Browser Forum and is audited annually for compliance to the EV Guidelines.

EV certificates have enhanced security indicators in most advanced browsers (such as the green bar in Microsoft Internet Explorer).
