All about EV (Extended Validation)

EV (standing for Extended Validation) is a certificates family bound to reinforce server certificates authentication (anti-phishing). It is the highest certification level currently available. It provides:
  • A standardization and an enhancement of the vetting processes
  • The URL bar: it appears green and displays the name of the certified organization
  • This specific identification allows webusers to know they are browsing a trusted site
