Organization validation

To validate an organization, DigiCert firsts verifies that the organization requesting a certificate is in good standing. This may include confirming good standing and active registration in corporate registries. It may also include verifying that the organization is not listed in any fraud, phishing, or government restricted entities and anti-terrorism databases.

Additionally, we verify that the organization requesting a certificate is, in fact, the organization to which the certificate will be issued. We also verify the organization contact.
