What is the difference between DV, OV and EV SSL Certificates?

Domain Validation or DV Certificates

They are easiest to validate. There is only an automated verification that ensures the applicant owns the domain behind the website. If you have a non-transactional website like blog, forum, or personal website, then DV SSL will work for you.

Extended Validation or EV Certificates

With EV SSL, you will have HTTPS + green display bar + organization’s name. This takes time to validate as the process includes business identity, legal status, and address. Since it requires a stringent security check, it offers customers more confidence.

Organization Validation or OV Certificates

OV has better security than DV and requires manual verification of the organization’s identity. It works best for small businesses and organizations.

How does SSL work?
  • A browser attempts to connect to an SSL protected website.
  • It requests the web server to identify itself.
  • The web server sends the browser a copy of its SSL certificate.
  • The browser checks if it trusts the SSL certificate or not. If it is trustworthy, it sends a message to the web server.
  • The web server sends back a digitally signed acknowledgement to start an SSL encrypted session.
  • Encrypted data is shared between the browser and the website. 
What is SSL and TSL?

TLS uses stronger encryption algorithms and has the ability to work on different ports. TLS is considered as the successor of SSL.
