SSL Certificates validation types explained:

Domain Validation

Certificate Authority (CA) checks the right of the applicant to use a specific domain name. No company identity information is vetted and no information is displayed other than encryption information within the RapidSSL Site Seal.

Domain vetted certificates are fully supported and share the same browser recognition with OrganizationSSL, but come with the advantage of being issued almost immediately and without the need to submit company paperwork. This makes DomainSSL ideal for businesses needing a low cost SSL quickly and without the effort of submitting company documents.

Organisation Validation

CA checks the right of the applicant to use a specific domain name PLUS it conducts some vetting of the organisation. Additional vetted company information is displayed to customers when clicking on the Secure Site Seal, giving enhanced visibility in who is behind the site and associated enhanced trust.

Phone Validation

Phone Validation (Extended Validation) is where the CA checks the right of the applicant to use a specific domain name PLUS it conducts a THOROUGH vetting of the organisation. The issuance process of EV SSL Certificates is strictly defined in the EV Guidelines, as formally ratified by the CA/Browser forum in 2007, that specify all the steps required for a CA before issuing a certificate, and includes:

  • Verifying the legal, physical and operational existence of the entity
  • Verifying that the identity of the entity matches official records
  • Verifying that the entity has exclusive right to use the domain specified in the EV SSL Certificate
  • Verifying that the entity has properly authorised the issuance of the EV SSL Certificate

EV SSL Certificates are available for all types of businesses, including government entities and both incorporated and unincorporated businesses. A second set of guidelines, the EV Audit Guidelines, specify the criteria under which a CA needs to be successfully audited before issuing EV SSL Certificates. The audits are repeated yearly to ensure the integrity of the issuance process.

EV SSL Certificates are the latest, and possibly most significant, advancement in SSL technology since its initial inception follows the standardised Extended Validation guidelines. New high security browsers such as Microsoft Internet Explorer 7+, Opera 9.5+, Firefox 3+, Google Chrome, Apple Safari 3.2+ and iPhone Safari 3.0+ identify ExtendedSSL Certificates as EV Certificates and activate the browser interface security enhancements, such as the Green Bar. For customers who wish to assert the highest levels of authenticity, ExtendedSSL is the ideal solution.

Domain Validation (DV)

Certificate Authority (CA) checks the right of the applicant to use a specific domain name. No company identity information is vetted and no information is displayed other than encryption information within the Secure Site Seal.

Domain validated certificates are fully supported and share the same browser recognition as the Phone validated certificates, but come with the advantage of being issued almost immediately and without the need to submit company paperwork. This makes RapidSSL certificates ideal for individuals needing a low cost SSL quickly and without the effort of submitting company documents.

Organisation Validation (OV)

Organization Validated (OV): In the case of an OV certificate, the certificate authority performs a much more substantial validation process. This includes checking the applicant’s business credentials and even making sure that the company’s physical address matches the application.

For individuals, the RapidSSL (DV) certificate is the most affordable and logical choice to provide simple encryption for things like logins. But for business, a domain validated certificate simply isn’t the appropriate choice. If you have small and mid-sized business customers, at the bare minimum, they should be using the QuickSSL Premium certificate (OV) to ensure that visitors to their website see that additional information about the organization in the certificate.

Phone Validation (PV)

Phone Validation (Extended Validation) is where the CA checks the right of the applicant to use a specific domain name PLUS it conducts a THOROUGH vetting of the organisation. The issuance process of EV SSL Certificates is strictly defined in the EV Guidelines, as formally ratified by the CA/Browser forum in 2007, that specify all the steps required for a CA before issuing a certificate, and includes:

  • Verifying the legal, physical and operational existence of the entity
  • Verifying that the identity of the entity matches official records
  • Verifying that the entity has exclusive right to use the domain specified in the EV SSL Certificate
  • Verifying that the entity has properly authorised the issuance of the EV SSL Certificate
