GeoTrust EV - Validation Requirements for SSL Certificates with Extended Validation
| Views: 13584

Description

Extended Validation SSL achieves the highest level of consumer trust through the strictest authentication standards of any SSL certificate. Extended Validation verification guidelines require GeoTrust to obtain and verify multiple pieces of identifying information about the Organization and Organizational Contact listed in the enrollment.


A. Organization Authentication Requirements

Geotrust must verify that your organization is registered with a government agency and in good standing in the location listed in your order.

The following entities are eligible to receive an EV Certificate provided they are currently registered with and approved by an official registration agency in their jurisdiction.


Government agencies

Corporations

General partnerships

Unincorporated associations

Sole proprietorships

 

B. Operational Existence Confirmation

If the organization has been registered for less than three years, GeoTrust must verify operational existence through one of the following means:

 

·         Through a qualified information source (e.g., Dun & Bradstreet, IRS) 

·         By verifying the organization has an active demand deposit account (e.g., checking account) with a regulated financial institution

·         Through a Professional Opinion Letter (template will be provided by GeoTrust)


C. Physical Address Confirmation

GeoTrust must verify the organization’s registered, physical address through one of the following means, if not listed in the Government Agency record:


A qualified information source (e.g., Dun & Bradstreet, BBB). The record must include the organization's full business name, and place of business address

Through a Professional Opinion Letter (template will be provided by GeoTrust)


D. Telephone Number Confirmation

GeoTrust must verify the organization’s telephone number through one of the following means, if not listed in the Government Agency record:


A qualified information source (e.g., Dun & Bradstreet, BBB, Yellow Pages)

Through a Professional Opinion Letter (template will be provided by GeoTrust)

 

E. Domain Authentication Requirements 

GeoTrust must confirm that your organization owns, or has the right to use, the domain listed in your order. Domain ownership is confirmed by performing a WHOIS lookup. The WHOIS lists a “Registrant”, which is considered the owner of the domain.  The domain registrant must match the organization’s registered, legal name listed and approved on the order.


If the registrant does not match, please update the domain Registrant with your domain Registrar to show your organization’s registered, legal name.

If your organization does not own the domain listed in your order, we will request:

Update the Registrant to match the organization’s registered, legal name.

Have the Administrative Contact (or relevant contact) on the WHOIS complete the Domain Rights Confirmation Letter.  Support will provide that contact with the Domain Rights Confirmation Letter template and instructions via e-mail.

F. Order Verification Requirements  

Verification involves calling the Organizational Contact for the order via a telephone number obtained through a qualified information source (e.g., Dun & Bradstreet, BBB, Yellow Pages), to confirm the order information within the enrollment.
