Domain Validation (DV)




Domain Validation or EV is a method of issuing SSL certificates. In most cases DV SSL are issued by automated systems which only verify the consent of the domain owner, they make no attempt to verify who the domain owner really is. This is the lowest level of validation available from commercial certificate authorities. Although DV certificates support transaction encryption, the end user cannot trust the certificate to confirm who is on the other end.
