Руководство по выпуску и управлению EV SSL сертификатов с расширенной валидацией
2.1 Purpose of EV Certificates
EV Certificates are intended for establishing Web-based data communication conduits via the TLS/SSL protocols and for verifying the authenticity of executable code.
2.1.1 Primary Purposes
The primary purposes of an EV Certificate are to:
(1) Identify the legal entity that controls a Web site: Provide a reasonable assurance to the user of an Internet browser that the Web site the user is accessing is controlled by a specific legal entity identified in the EV Certificate by name, address of Place of Business, Jurisdiction of Incorporation or Registration and Registration Number or other disambiguating information; and
(2) Enable encrypted communications with a Web site: Facilitate the exchange of encryption keys in order to enable the encrypted communication of information over the Internet between the user of an Internet browser and a Web site.
2.1.2 Secondary Purposes
The secondary purposes of an EV Certificate are to help establish the legitimacy of a business claiming to operate a Web site or distribute executable code, and to provide a vehicle that can be used to assist in addressing problems related to phishing, malware, and other forms of online identity fraud. By providing more reliable third-party verified identity and address information regarding the business, EV Certificates may help to:
(1) Make it more difficult to mount phishing and other online identity fraud attacks using Certificates;
(2) Assist companies that may be the target of phishing attacks or online identity fraud by providing them with a tool to better identify themselves to users; and
(3) Assist law enforcement organizations in their investigations of phishing and other online identity fraud, including where appropriate,
contacting, investigating, or taking legal action against the Subject.
2.1.3 Excluded Purposes
EV Certificates focus only on the identity of the Subject named in the Certificate, and not on the behavior of the Subject. As such, an EV Certificate is not intended to provide any assurances, or otherwise represent or warrant:
(1) That the Subject named in the EV Certificate is actively engaged in doing business;
(2) That the Subject named in the EV Certificate complies with applicable laws;
(3) That the Subject named in the EV Certificate is trustworthy, honest, or reputable in its business dealings; or
(4) That it is “safe” to do business with the Subject named in the EV Certificate.
