Overview:

The stringent identity verification process that, as a matter of best practice, is required to issue SSL certificates, is expensive for CAs to maintain. As a result, SSL certificates originally carried a price that reflected the quality of that verification process. Some SSL customers, pressured CAs for a lower-cost product and many CAs responded by offering "domain validation only" certificates. These lower-priced certificates only verify the domain name to which they are issued, and do not include more extensive identity validation of the domain's owner company. While less expensive, these SSL certificates also provide less assurance to the end user. These certificates are often ideal for low-security applications, when the stronger validation required to issue a traditional SSL certificate is not necessary.

Eventually, end users became confused about the differences between SSL certificates and began demanding a way to distinguish between these less-expensive certificates and certificates that provide greater identity verification and assurance. In response, the CA/Browser Forum, an independent industry group, produced guidelines for an Extended Validation (EV) certificate.

An EV certificate is an SSL certificate where the issuing CA must take more rigorous steps to validate the identity of the certificate requestor. CAs must also pass an independent audit of their validation procedures in order to continue offering EV certificates, meaning EV certificates tend to only be available from top-tier, highly-trusted CAs, such as Thawte.

Choosing a Certificate:

The right SSL certificate depends on the level of assurance your customers need and the minimum security level your organization requires.

Assurance and Authentication

Authentication means that a trusted third party (such as Thawte) has verified the identification information contained in your SSL certificate, assuring customers that your site is actually your site.

Most Assurance.You are considering: SSL Web Server Certificates with EV to provide the most assurance to users. Extended Validation (EV) turns the address bar green in high-security browsers, showing that your organization has met the industry's highest standard of authentication.

3Most Assurance

Security and Encryption

Encryption is the "secret code" used to keep online communications private when a web browser and web server talk to each other.

Security and EncryptionYou are considering: SSL Web Server Certificates with EV with 128-bit or 256-bit encryption in the latest operating systems and web browsers. However, certain older browsers and operating systems only connect at 40-bit or 56-bit.

Most Assurance.For strong encryption in the most browsers, SGC SuperCerts with server-gated cryptography (SGC) enable older browsers and operating systems to step up to 128-bit or 256-bit encryption.

If you need both Extended Validation and SGC, consider a VeriSign Secure Site Pro with EV SSL Certificate.
