thawte ’s SSL Web Server Certificate with EV offers corporations and government entities the highest industry standard for identity authentication as well as 256-, 128-, 56- or 40-bit encryption. The level of encryption delivered depends on your client’s browser capability and the cipher suite installed on your web server. End users with the latest high-security web browsers will see a highly visible green address bar verifying the authenticity of your web site if you secure your web site with an Extended Validation SSL Certificate. This is the only level of authentication that enables Internet Explorer 7 to display the trusted green address bar and a scrolling security status bar identifying both the name of the web site and the Certificate Authority for the web site.
