An Extended Validation Certificate (EV) is a certificate used for HTTPS websites and software that proves the legal entity controlling the website or software package.
Obtaining an EV certificate requires verification of the requesting entity's identity by a certificate authority (CA).
Please note that this validation process does not apply to UCC filings or searches that have been generated by the Delaware Division of Corporations and can only be utilized for certificates issued on Delaware business entities.
For example, in a hierarchical PKI, a certificate chain starting with a web server certificate might lead to a small CA, then to an intermediate CA, then to a large CA whose trust anchor is present in the relying party's web browser.Web browsers show the verified legal identity prominently in their user interface, either before, or instead of, the domain name.For software, the verified legal identity is displayed to the user by the operating system (e.g., Microsoft Windows) before proceeding with the installation.The guidelines are produced by the CA/Browser Forum, a voluntary organization whose members include leading CAs and vendors of Internet software, as well as representatives from the legal and audit professions.On June 12, 2007, the CA/Browser Forum officially ratified the first version of the Extended Validation (EV) SSL Guidelines, which took effect immediately.
