Organization validation

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

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