We’ve created this short blog post as a response to a question we received via Twitter @nortonsecured. We were asked about if it was possible to set up and test the Norton Secured Seal in a development environment.
As this was such a great question we wanted to share this information more widely.
Testing the Norton Seal in a development or test environment
Customers can test the Norton Secured Seal in their development environment following these steps:
- Set up a development environment where the domain name matches their production website that is secured by a Symantec SSL certificate. E.g. If the production website is www.abc.com, the development environment could be test.abc.com
- Generate the Seal script from Symantec's Seal Install page at http://www.symantec.com/ssl/seal-agreement/install.jsp (script needs to be generated using the domain name of the website in test environment e.g. test.abc.com)
- Update the web page in the development environment to include the generated seal script
Since the development environment will, in most cases, not have an exact match of domain name with production environment, customers would see a generic seal splash page in their test/development environments
