Organization validated SSL certificates

During a Organization Validation the CA will verify that the domain and the certificate form one entity and that the owner of the domain has been validated. The organization validation usually requires an extract from the trade register or the Chamber of Commerce. The domain's owner will be visible when users check the certificate information (e.g. by clicking on the Site Seal). SSL certificates with an Organization Validation make far more requirements to the domain owner.
