Sorry for the gap in blogging. We got a blogging software upgrade and it's been two solid weeks of technical problems. I've been traveling a lot, and in the few moments I did have to blog the console was unavailable.

I have lots of things to tell you, but let's make it an easy one this morning. Credit card giant Visa has added EV SSL to its site.

Hi Tim,

Why isn't the VeriSign Secured Seal displayed on the page ? Unless we click on the "Lock" icon on the browser's status bar , we won't know that VeriSign is behind this... Is it that customers like Visa have the option of displaying the seal but they chose not to display it for whatever reason ?

The VeriSign Secured Seal is available at no additional charge to anyone who uses VeriSign SSL on that same site. Over 90,000 Web sites across 145 countries have chosen to put up the seal, but it is purely optional for the site. There are other great reasons to choose VeriSign SSL Certificates such as our best-of-breed PKI practices and our robust certificate management platforms, so these advantages are probably the motivators for Visa to use VeriSign even if they don't choose to display the seal.
