Extented Validation

Extended Validation (EV) Organization authentication requirements

How a Certification Authority (CA) validates an organization

The following parameters validate the Organization for an EV certificate: 

  • Official government agency records must include the organization's registration number or the organization's date of registration/incorporation; and the organization's or registered agent's address. This should be the same address that is listed in the certificate request.
  • A non-government data source (such as Dun & Bradstreet) must include the organization's place of business address as listed in the order. You can search by company name to see your address on file for free (via yellow Company Search button at top of D & B homepage – see below).
  • If the organization has been registered for less than 3 years and has no Dun & Bradstreet record, the CA (e.g. Symantec/GeoTrust/Thawte) will verify that the organization has an active demand deposit account (such as a checking account) with a regulated financial firm.

Below is a screenshot from the Dun & Bradstreet (D & B) site showing where you search for your company's address on file.
