    Got extended validation support? Howto? (From a stance, friend to friend non-world kind)

     
  • EV certificates come with a special Certificate-Policy and in fact their security is not based on stronger encryption
    but the policy defines higher validation measures than only checking for a requestor being able to recieve postmaster@website.org mails to issue certificates for www.website.org.

    EV CA cert policy OIDs must be registered with the browser-manufacturers.
    If you only want to create such a certificate, take an original one, import it into XCA
    and look at their extensions and also read and understand:
      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Extended_Validation_Certificate

    I don't think that importing such certificates (and getting a green "Organisation" in the URL) into web browsers is as easy as importing ordinary CA certificates.

    But I'm really not an EV cert specialist.

    You can create your own EV Certificate. You have to meet the requirements:
    - Windows Vista and upper
    - You see "green bar" only in IE.

    In attachment you can see my own Certificate EV create by XCA.
