Domain Validation in One Business Day or Less
Thawte® SSL123 Certificates have the fastest issuance time to quickly enable encrypted connections to your web server. This domain-only validation SSL Certificate provides up to 256-bit encryption for web-based applications that are not at risk for phishing or fraud. SSL123 Certificates include domain authentication, the Thawte® Trusted Site Seal, free reissues, and a 30-day money back guarantee.
- Create a secure, private connection for TLS, server to server communications, mail and FTP servers, and other applications with issuance in about one business day or less (depends on the availability of domain name registration information).
- Protect confidential information exchanged during secure sign-in and self-service interactions with up to 256-bit SSL encryption and 500k USD warranty.
- Buy, renew, and manage certificates with a single, secure sign-in to Thawte® Certificate Center.
- Save time and money by purchasing multi-year SSL certificates and additional licenses when securing multiple servers for a single domain (co-location, clustering, load balancing servers, etc.).
SSL123 Certificates are not available through Thawte® Certificate Center Enterprise Account.
However, if you plan to buy more than 10 Thawte® SSL Certificates this year, you may be eligible for a Thawte Certificate Center Enterprise Account with volume discounts and centralized control of all other Thawte certificates. To calculate savings for different types of SSL and code signing certificates, go to Volume SSL Discounts.
The right SSL certificate depends on the level of assurance your customers need and the minimum security level your organization requires.
Assurance and Authentication
Authentication means that a trusted third party (such as Thawte) has verified the identification information contained in your SSL certificate, assuring customers that your site is actually your site.
You are considering: SSL123 Certificates with domain validation, the minimum level of validation in commercially-available SSL certificates. Your domain name is the only information available to assure users.
For more assurance, SSL Web Server Certificates with full organization validation include your domain name and validated organization name in certificate details and verification pages.
For the most assurance, SSL Web Server Certificates with EV turn the address bar green in high-security browsers, showing that your organization has met the industry’s highest standard of authentication. Extended Validation (EV) includes your domain name, organization, and location in certificate details and verification pages.
Security and Encryption
Encryption is the "secret code" used to keep online communications private when a web browser and web server talk to each other.
You are considering: SSL123 Certificates with 128-bit or 256-bit encryption in the latest operating systems and web browsers. However, certain older browsers and operating systems only connect at 40-bit or 56-bit.
For strong encryption in the most browsers with server-gated cryptography (SGC) enable older browsers and operating systems to step up to 128-bit or 256-bit encryption.
If you need both Extended Validation and SGC, consider a VeriSign® Secure Site Pro with EV SSL Certificate.
