Extended Validation - EV SSL Validation Process
Extended Validation – EV Vetting For Maximum Customer Assurance.
An Extended Validation Certificate (EV) is a certificate conforming to X.509 that proves the legal entity of the owner and is signed by a certificate authority key that can issue EV certificates.
EV certificates can be used in the same manner as any other X.509 certificates, including securing web communications with HTTPS and signing software and documents.
Unlike domain-validated certificates and organisation-validation certificates, EV certificates can be issued only by a subset of certificate authorities (CAs) and require verification of the requesting entity’s legal identity before certificate issuance.
While Extended Validation – EV may seem daunting at first but it is a very easy and straightforward process for any company or business with up-to-date registration info.
EV SSL validation process is designed to offer maximum vetting while still being simple for most organisations to complete.
EV SSL Process Overview
The entire Extended Validation – EV SSL process takes between one business day and a week.
The more information that is publicly available or the more you can furnish – the faster the process.
EV SSL Certificate Enrolment Form
Fill in the form and return it to us – simple
The first step in the validation process is simply to fill in the enrolment form. The form is just a single page and just requires a little bit of information about your business or company as well as you and a designated contact that can verify your employment.
What is the EV Enrolment Form?
The EV Enrolment form is very straightforward form. You can find a copy of our EV Enrolment Form here. Throughout this process, you will be the organisation’s contact. This means you will have to answer a phone call and verify the order details at the end of validation.
The point of the enrolment form is basically to verify that you are an employee of the business you claiming to be represent and that you are acting in good faith. Provided you are CA or TTP will move right on with the validation process.
What Information does the EV Enrolment Form Ask For?
The enrolment form also known as an Acknowledgement of Agreement is focused on the business’s contact. It wants information like the contact’s official title, their signature, the date and the place of signing.
Despite the digital nature of the product you are purchasing – digital or stamped signatures are not accepted. You will have to print the form and sign it for real. Then you can scan and return it to us via email attachment.
Choose Your EV SSL Certificate
Before you submit the EV Enrolment Form you will need to choose and purchase an EV SSL. We will email you with a selection to choose from and you need choose one and respond with your choice.
CA or TTP just wants to make sure you are a legal registered entity
Organisation Authentication is a requirement for both Organisation Validation and Extended Validation. Before the requirement is satisfied CA or TTP needs to verify that your company or business is a legitimate legal entity.
How do I satisfy Organisation Authentication?
CA or TTP is going to take a look at your registration information and try to verify that your business is registered and active in your location.
When you fill out your Certificate Signing Request – CSR and provide CA or TTP with the details, always make that you double-check that everything is correct. Even a single typo can cause a delay in issuance.
If you operate under any trade names, assumed names or Doing Business As – DBAs, all of this registration information needs to be up to date and accurate.
CA or TTP will check your local government’s online databases and the details you supplied against the details that are listed.
My company's registration information is not listed online
Do not panic, there are other alternatives. The easiest one is just to supply that information yourself which has been issued by your government like articles of incorporation, a chartered license or a DBA statement – this should do the trick.
What other ways can I pass Organisation Authentication?
There are two other ways to satisfy this requirement. You can get a Professional Opinion Letter or use a Dun & Bradstreet listing.
☑ A Professional Opinion Letter is a document in which a solicitor or accountant in good standing essentially vouches for the legitimacy of your company or business.
☑ Dun & Bradstreet is a financial reporting organisation that can provide you with a comprehensive credit report that will also satisfy this requirement.
This is extremely simple. CA or TTP is just going to check your company’s registration information to make sure that you are a legitimate legal entity.
CA or TTP needs to verify your business has been operational for three years
Operational Existence is a step in the Extended Validation process where CA or TTP will attempt to verify that your organisation has been operational for at least three years.
Do not worry if your company is new and has not been around that long, you can still get your EV SSL certificate. We will tell you how.
How do I satisfy Operational Existence?
If your company is well established this step is extremely simple. CA or TTP is going to check your local online government database.
If your locality keeps good records and your company has been around that long, you will be all set. If not, do not worry.
My business is not listed in my local database
Not a problem, CA or TTP will also accept any official registration documents that have been issued by your local government which includes articles of incorporation, charter licenses or DBA statements.
Any one of these will provide that your business is official. If you have not been around for longer than three years then this option would not be of much use.
My company has not been around three years
This can be overcome. You have three options:
☑ Dun & Bradstreet Credit Report – Dun & Bradstreet are a financial organisation that issues credit reports for companies. A DUNS credit report will work no matter how long you have been operating.
☑ Professional Opinion Letter – If you can get any accredited solicitor or accountant to fill out and notarise a form stating that you are a legitimate business, CA or TTP will accept this as proof of operational existence.
☑ Bank Confirmation Letter – No matter how long you have been in operation, if you have an active checking account at an accredited bank just supply a letter verifying this information and you will be set.
CA or TTP needs to confirm that you have an actual physical address
To complete Extended Validation CA or TTP will need to verify that your company or business has an established physical presence in its registered locality.
To do this it will check for an actual physical address, meaning the building number – office or suite number if applicable, street, city, state and country.
How do I prove my physical address?
CA or TTP is going to check for your physical address by looking it up in your local online government database.
If the information provided in your listing matches the information you put down in your Certificate Signing Request – CSR then you are good to go. CA or TTP will consider this requirement satisfied.
My company is not listed on any online database
Do not panic, this happens more than you think. The best way around this – is to send CA or TTP your official registration documents.
As long as the documentation was issued by your local government and it matches the information that you provided – CA or TTP will accept it.
Are there any other methods to prove physical address?
Yes of course. There are two additional ways to prove your physical address. They are a professional opinion letter and a Dun & Bradstreet credit report.
Both will satisfy the Physical Address requirement.
☑ Professional Opinion Letter – Have an accredited accountant or solicitor sign and notarise a form that states your company has a legitimate address.
☑ Dun & Bradstreet credit report – Dun & Bradstreet is highly trusted by CA or TTP, providing a copy of a Dun & Bradstreet credit report will satisfy this requirement.
To verify your physical address CA or TTP will check your official registration documents to make sure you have an active legal presence in your registered location.
CA or TTP will need to verify that you have a working listed phone number
Phone Verification is a requirement for both Organisation Validation and Extended Validation SSL certificates.
Basically CA or TTP needs to verify that you have a phone number that is working and that you are listed in a trusted directory.
How do I satisfy the Phone Verification requirement?
Phone verification is simple – just make sure your phone number is listed. Pretty much every business has a phone number and as long as consumers can find it, you should be good.
The first way CA or TTP is going to attempt to verify your telephone number is by checking your local online government database. If the number is listed and the rest of the listing matches the details you have provided then you have satisfied the requirement.
My number is not listed in the government database
No worries. There are other methods to satisfy this requirement. In fact, most people run into this problem. CA or TTP will also check a group of trusted third-party directories.
These directories are:
✓ Dun and Bradstreet
Professional Opinion Letters also works
If you do not have your number listed in one of those directories or not listed publicly in the government database then you can also provide a Professional Opinion Letter.
Professional Opinion Letters are also called Legal Opinion Letters – are notarised forms where an accredited solicitor or accountant can vouch for the legitimacy of your business or company.
Submitting a Professional Opinion Letter actually satisfies most of the validation requirements for OV and EV SSL. CA or TTP is going to verify that your business has a listed phone number.
CA or TTP needs to verify ownership of your domain
Domain Verification is also a requirement for both Organisation Validation and Extended Validation. CA or TTP needs to verify that you own your domain.
Issuing a certificate to the wrong party is called inappropriate issuance and can lead to major penalties for certificate authorities – CA.
How do I satisfy Domain Verification?
Domain Verification is fairly simple. CA or TTP is going to check the WHOIS record for the registered website and email address that is listed.
As long as you can respond to the email in question – stating that you are the owner and you did order the SSL certificate – CA or TTP will consider this requirement passed.
I am unable to access the email on the WHOIS record
Not a problem. There are a few ways around this and the easiest is just updating the WHOIS record. It could be a mistake with the record, you could have set the record to private or there are a number of possible reasons the WHOIS record might be failing to satisfy this requirement.
If you are unable to update the record or updating does not work there are two other methods:
✓ Proof of Right Email – CA or TTP will also send the authentication to one of five pre-approved email addresses. If you can answer the email on one of these addresses CA or TTP will consider that proof of ownership.
The addresses are:
✓ Professional Opinion Letter – If you have an accredited accountant or solicitor close by you can get them to fill out and notarise a form that states you own the domain. This also works for satisfying this requirement.
Final Verification Phone Call
Just answer your phone – that is it.
The Final Verification phone call is the final validation step for both Organisation Validation and Extended Validation.
CA or TTP simply needs to call either the person that raised the order or the specified company contact to verify some details. It is really just a matter of answering your phone.
What is the Final Verification Call?
Before CA or TTP can issue your SSL certificate it needs to call you on your company’s listed phone number and verify the orders of the detail.
Well this all ties up with the previous steps altogether. It shows that you are a real company with a real employee who is actually answering the company phone during business hours.
Provided you can take the call, CA or TTP will close the book on your validation and issue your SSL certificate.
But I do not answer the company phone line
No problem. CA or TTP understands that this might be the case in most circumstances. All you need to make sure is that CA or TTP can connect with you via the company phone line.
Even if it means having a co-worker put his hand over the receiver and call your name down the hall or working through the phone system, CA or TTP will attempt it.
- Extension or Interactive Voice Response – If you have an extension, CA or TTP will dial it so make sure that your extension is either listed or you need to provide it to CA or TTP.
- Transfer or Alternative Number – The person who answers your company’s listed phone number can also connect CA or TTP with your phone or else provide an alternative number.
Now just answer the CA’s or TTP’s questions and your certificate will be emailed to you in no time.
Upon completion of the above requirements, a representative from CA or TTP will call your to verify the details of the certificate order.
