I've blogged in the past, including recently, about tax sites, phishing, and visitor confidence, especially as it relates to EV SSL. I live in the US, so I'm more personally engaged in the local online tax situation. But do remember that these issues are important in every nation on the globe.

Happy tax day, Canadians. Be safe.

In a last minute substitution, VeriSign product manager Jay Sciavo filled in at last week's AOTA Summit. Presenters included Microsoft's Dave Bossio and eBay Senior Product Manager Karim Noorali. Dave and Karim had some very interesting things to say, which I'll blog another day soon when I have a little more time than I do right now.

With all the excitement of deploying EV SSL across major sites like eBay, Charles Schwab, PayPal, Travelocity, and most recently Fifth Third Bank, it's easy to lose site of the VeriSign Secured Seal. Remember, the VeriSign Secured Seal is like EV before EV. It is the way that a Web site can demonstrate that best of breed SSL security is in place on a site and that the identity of the site has been highly authenticated.

I'm very pleased that Fifth Third Bank has Extended Validation SSL. Among the largest banks in the world, Fifth Third has long been a poster of the VeriSign Secured Seal to demonstrate its commitment to securing customers, and now the bank has shown its forward thinking nature by taking the next step to EV.

Welcome to this week's edition of Told-You-So Corner. Today's subject is the need for authentic identity with regard to online tax filing.

[Tim steps up on soapbox]

In the past I've spoken with many people (and blogged) about online tax filing as a vulnerability for phishing and other social engineering attacks. Well, this tax year we saw quite a spate of online activity that we could categorize as phishing attacks aimed at those seeking to file their taxes online.

I was so busy last week with my frantic Japan trip that I didn't have an opportunity to blog about VeriSign's EV SSL bundle with ScanAlert HACKER SAFE. ScanAlert will be offering VeriSign Extended Validation SSL Certificates to its HACKER SAFE customers at a discount off the regular price. EV SSL, the VeriSign Secured Seal, and the HACKER SAFE seal are a great combination to maximize consumer confidence and demonstrate to your customers that you're using best security practices to take care of them.

VeriSign product manager Troy Kitch will be presenting EV SSL along with representatives of Microsoft and Wells Fargo at the 2007 American Banking Association Information Security Forum in Scottsdale, Arizona.

I'm very pleased to announce that VeriSign is the first Certificate Authority to be issuing EV SSL Certificates in Japan. Last week VeriSign held a press conference in Tokyo to introduce Extended Validation to the Japanese media, and I participated, as evidenced here. You may have noticed some of my postings occurring at very odd hours for me. That would be why.

Here are two interesting new articles about consumer fear and its cost to online business. The first reads in part,

A Zogby Interactive survey has found that worry about identify theft has now reached most online Americans--91% of those polled said they are concerned that their identity might be stolen and used to make unauthorized purchases.

I've just learned that VeriSign's upcoming presentation at the AOTA summit will include an Extended Validation case study to be presented by PayPal senior product manager Karim Noorali. If you're attending the AOTA summit, don't miss this presentation.

I won't be able to make it myself, unfortunately. However, I'm anticipating a pretty detailed report on what PayPal discusses, and I'll pass along whatever I learn.
