One of the most important functions of an SSL certificate is to show the users of your SSL secured application that the company behind it is registered with the correct authorities, and that the company has the right to use the domain on which the certificate is installed, i.e. that the certificate has been authenticated and validated. Since the development of the SSL technology back in the mid nineties, there has not been a common, universal authentication standard. This means that some CAs issue certificates validated automatically by a computer, whereas other CAs issue certificates validated manually by several persons performing verification calls etc (please refer to Secorio’s authentication process). In some instances it happened that certificates got issued to a website not owned by a registered company, but someone with fraudulant intentions.

In autumn 2006 leading CAs and browser vendors agreed to a common, universal standard, the standard Extended Validation.
