Offering a comprehensive portfolio of TLS/SSL certificates to meet your needs

Let’s start by offering a few helpful definitions!

TLS/SSL server certificates validate different information, based on the type of certificate purchased.

Domain Validated (DV): Lowest level of assurance. Domain Validated certificates are server security certificates that confirm that the domain name is authentic. Before a DV certificate is issued, IdenTrust uses various methods to validate application data and domain ownership. IdenTrust does not offer domain validated certificates unless specifically requested by an enterprise customer.

Organization Validated (OV): Most common level of assurance. Organization Validated certificates confirm that the domain name is authentic, it is associated with the named organization and that the organization is authentic. Before an OV certificate is issued, all validation steps for a DV certificate are performed, as well as validation of the organization to be named in the certificate. Unless otherwise indicated, all IdenTrust TLS/SSL certificates are OV certificates. OV certificates activate the padlock in most browsers.

Extended Validated (EV): Highest level of assurance. Extended Validation certificates confirm the same information as OV certificates and that the organization is a legal and functioning entity. When an EV certificate is issued, IdenTrust may require additional documentation to substantiate the legal status of the organization. EV certificates activate both the padlock and the green address bar in most browsers.

Government Trust: For those organizations that require a TLS/SSL certificate that is trusted by the government, IdenTrust offers a DoD ECA-compliant TLS/SSL certificate.

Public Trust: For those organizations that require a TLS/SSL certificate that is publicly trusted and native in most browsers, IdenTrust offers TrustID TLS/SSL certificates.

In order to electronically file FATCA reports via the IRS International Data Exchange Services (IDES) system, an organization must be issued an IRS-approved TLS/SSL certificate. IdenTrust is on the approved list of vendors authorized to issue IRS-compliant FATCA TLS/SSL certificates.

Single Domain: A single domain TLS/SSL certificate establishes a secure connection between a browser and a server. With TLS/SSL certificates, the communication is encrypted, assuring visitors that their information is secure and private. These certificates also authenticate an organization’s identity. This is confirmed by the visual appearance of a padlock next to the web address in the browser.

Multi-Domain: These certificates are ideal to secure multiple names across different domains and sub-domains and offer complete control over the Subject Alternative Name (SAN) field. A single multi-domain certificate will allow you to secure domains such as:,,, or

Organizations who manage multiple websites hosted across numerous subdomains may choose a TrustID TLS/SSL certificate.

Multi-Domain: Organizations with more than one unique Fully Qualified Domain Name (FQDN) will benefit from selecting an IdenTrust TrustID Multi-Domain certificate, which also offers Organization Validated (OV) features that are important when you are operating an e-commerce or business website, so that your organization can be recognized. Up to four (4) FQDNs can be included in one multi-domain certificate. (Additional FQDNs can be added for a fee.)

Wildcard: IdenTrust TrustID TLS/SSL OV and EV certificates can support TLS/SSL Wildcard usage. In order to issue a Wildcard certificate, IdenTrust will perform authentication processes to confirm that the requesting organization has full control of the entire domain namespace. A Wildcard certificate includes an asterisk that is correctly positioned in the Fully Qualified Domain Name (FQDN) and will cover all sub-domain names associated with that domain. Wildcard TLS/SSL certificates are currently available to our enterprise customers.
