Enable all the benefits of EV

To display all the user interface benefits of an EV SSL certificate, a visiting client system must already have the matching EV SSL root. Vista systems automatically receive updates from Microsoft, so these clients will already have the EV SSL root. Windows XP systems require prompting to update the local root store. This prompting occurs automatically the first time a Windows XP client system visits an SSL-protected web site without an SSL Certificate root that matches one already in the client's local store. Every GeoTrust EV SSL certificate is signed with both an EV root and a traditional SSL root in order to offer SSL protection to as many web site visitors as possible regardless of what browser they use.  EV Upgrader contains a hyperlink directing that visiting client to a GeoTrust page signed with only the new GeoTrust EV SSL root. Upon visiting this GeoTrust site, the Windows XP client system will be prompted to update the local root store with the GeoTrust EV SSL root. This entire process takes place in the background and is completely invisible to the end user.

The EV Process

Extended Validation SSL achieves the highest level of consumer trust through the strictest authentication standards of any SSL certificate. Extended Validation verification guidelines require GeoTrust to obtain and verify multiple pieces of identifying information about Extended Validation certificate applicants.
