SSL certificate Organization Validation (OV) procedure

The above validation process applies for these SSL certificates:

SSL certificate validation process is entirely manual and consists of three steps to validate the certificate applicant.
Domain owner validation, applicant organization validation and final phone validation of the contact person.

Domain validation

The match between the domain owner and the certificate applicant is confirmed in available domain registrar databases.

Organization validation

Information about the organization that will become the SSL certificate owner is verified in the Commercial Register.

Phone validation

The certificate authority obtains the contact phone from public phone books (yellow pages). Subsequent oral validation is generally carried out in English and takes approx. 1 minute.

If the certificate authority cannot find certain information publicly, it requests an additional form of validation.
The time to issue the certificate increases by the time needed to make additional verifications.

When the validation process is finished, the created SSL certificate is sent to the technical contact address, or you can obtain it any time after signing up to your customer account.
