If you have Internet Explorer 7, you probably already noticed The SSL Blog has Extended Validation SSL on it. If not, just add an s to the http in the address of the page you're looking at now (or click this link to The SSL Blog if you're lazy), and check it out.

I can't prove it, but I think this makes the VeriSign blogs (which includes The SSL Blog among others) the first ever blogs in the world to be protected with Extended Validation SSL Certificates. Another milestone shattered. ;)

Today we had a great WebEx presentation on the latest updates in Extended Validation SSL Certificates. It was attended by over 100 businesses and during Q&A inspired considerably more questions than we could answer.

The seminar already is posted, and you can watch it here.

A few weeks ago I mentioned my desire to use this blog to set the record straight on various incorrect assumptions we see surrounding Extended Validation SSL Certificates. I'll kick it off here with one of the most common myths I have read in the press or heard from Web site administrators.

I'll be giving a Web seminar this coming Thursday on Extended Validation SSL. The last time we had 780 attendees and a great question and answer session. Now with the certificates actually deployed in the market, there's more information to share than ever.

We recently published a very cool, new flash demo that goes over Extended Validation SSL Certificates. It takes about two minutes and is pretty nice.

Leading German bank Deutsche Postbank has publically endorsed Extended Validation SSL as its future direction. Writes Michael Heinen, Divisional Director of Postbank, "No bank can afford to be red, yellow or even white. When our customers perform their transactions online, the green address bar is an additional indication that they are on the real Postbank site and not on a phishing site. The additional authentication required to gain the green bar is vitally important for a bank such as ours!"

Opera Labs just published this article on EV certificates. Not a lot here that's new, but it's a good overview of the technology and how we got where we are. The article includes a screen shot of an Opera demo version displaying an Extended Validation SSL Certificate with a green address bar. The article states, "Opera has not yet implemented complete support for what is needed for Extended Validation, but work is underway." In terms of an expected release date, all the article states is "When It's Ready."

Microsoft Security Product Manager Markellos Diorinos is interviewed online on the subject of Extended Validation SSL. Just go down to the podcasts near the middle of the page and click on the link with Markellos's name. It's a good summary of the EV initiative and how EV SSL Certificates help consumer confidence on the sites where they do business or access confidential information.

Northern Rock, a major UK lending firm, has deployed EV SSL Certificates. I believe this posting is the most prominent (although certainly not the first) non-US Extended Validation deployment.
