What is Extended Validation SSL?

Extended Validation SSL Certificates give high-security web browser information to clearly identify a website's organizational identity. For example, if you use Microsoft® Internet Explorer 7 to visit a website secured with an SSL Certificate that meets the Extended Validation Standard, IE7 will cause the URL address bar to turn green. A display next to the green bar will toggle between the organization name listed in the certificate and the Certificate Authority (VeriSign, for example). Firefox 3 also supports Extended Validation SSL. Other browsers are expected to offer Extended Validation visibility in upcoming releases. Older browsers will display Extended Validation SSL Certificates with the same security symbols as in the existing SSL Certificates.
