What is Extended
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.
