In the past I've mentioned the IRS's new guideline for EV SSL on all sites accepting online tax filings. In addition to H&R Block and early adopters like FileYourTaxes.com, now TurboTax has gotten on board with Extended Validation SSL.

I applaud the IRS for displaying the vision to enact a requirement like this one to help online consumers protect themselves from phishing and other forms of online fraud. I encourage other regulatory agencies and standards bodies to follow this example and mandate EV or equivalent solutions such as two-factor authentication.
