Verisign and Comodo formally EV enabled
By Yngve Nysæter Pettersenyngve. Friday, September 12, 2008 1:26:14 PM
There are no practical effects for Comodo, as their certificate has been provisionally enabled for a few months as part of EV testing. Verisign's Thawte and Geotrust certificates, which were not part of the testing, are EV-enabled as of today.
- Geotrust: https://www.geotrust.com
- Thawte: https://www.thawte.com
As usual, the EV certified Web sites signed by the newly EV-enabled Roots will not show the EV indicator until after the weekly automatic update (on start), or a manual Help->Check Updates (with a restart possibly needed afterwards).
We have several more CAs in the EV pipeline that are expected to be ready within a couple of weeks. Stay tuned.
