I've written quite a bit on this blog about what has carried the code name High Assurance SSL Certificates. Well, the industry consortium creating the new standard has decided on an official name for them, which is Extended Validation. So when you see me writing about Extended Validation or EV SSL Certificates - or when you see these terms in the press or on a company's Web site - we're referring to what up to now has been referred to as High Assurance.
