Extended Validation (EV)




Extended Validation or EV is a type of SSL certificate issued by a certificate authority (CA) according to a specific set of identity verification criteria. These criteria require extensive verification of the requesting entity’s identity by the CA before a certificate is issued. Sites using an Extended Validation certificate display a green address bar in browsers so that users can easily identify sites with EV.
