SSL certificates with Extended Validation show that a trusted third party has validated your identification information using the industry's most rigorous authentication standard and that information is encrypted during transmission.

Only SSL certificates with Extended Validation display the green address bar and the authenticated organization name next to the name of the issuing certificate authority in high-security browsers.

*** Extended Validation (EV) = domain ownership confirmed, organization validated, plus additional verifications performed using validation criteria established by CA/Browser Forum. For details, see: Extended Validation FAQ

** Full organization validation = domain ownership confirmed, organization validated, plus order verified.

* Domain validation = only domain ownership is confirmed

Certain older browsers and operating systems cannot connect at 128-bit or 256-bit encryption unless an SSL certificate with server-gated cryptography (SGC) is used. SSL certificates with SGC enable 128- or 256-bit encryption for over 99.9% of Internet users. Learn about SSL and Web Browsers

When you submit your certificate request, Thawte verifies the information as quickly as possible according to standards described in our Certification Practices Statement (CPS). The quality of the information provided and our ability to independently validate it affects the speed with which we issue a certificate.

Subject Alternative Name (SAN) is an extension within a certificate that allows you to list multiple common names such as mail.thawte.com and webmail.thawte.net. An SSL certificate with multiple SANs, also known as a Unified Communications Certificate (UCC), is most commonly used for Microsoft Exchange Servers.

Thawte makes it easy to manage all your organization’s SSL and code signing certificates with one log-in to Thawte® Certificate Center. Enterprise Accounts with Volume SSL Discounts are available for customers who purchase more than 10 certificates per year.

When connecting to an SSL-protected web site, most browsers display a security warning if the root certificate is not recognized. As an established, globally recognized certificate authority, Thawte root certificates have been pre-installed in most major browsers since 1996. Learn about SSL and Web Browsers

The Online Certificate Status Protocol (OCSP) and Certificate Revocation Lists (CRLs) are used by browsers to check the status of a certificate. Thawte certificates support OCSP, which maximizes the speed and reliability of this status check.

Internationalized Domain Names (IDNs) are second level domain names or Web addresses, represented by local language characters (for example, 青年奥运.com). Thawte® SSL Certificates accept IDNs as common names.
