    Ahoi brothers,


    Does anyone have any experience with 'Extended Validation SSL certificate (the green bar one)', and what are the requirements?

    You obviously need to provide your company registration papers but what else do they look at before issuing a certificate?

    They'll walk you through it; however here is a little thing they need.

    They need you to get listed in public directories
    They need to speak to someone who is an employee of the company
    They need to check your ID, passport, SSN anything
    They check your office / home / mobile number
    Letter sent to office
    Letter sent to home
    proof of registration status.

    It's a complete asshole to do, but really nice when it's done..

    You need dedicated IP too and some legal documents for your identity.
    A license would do :)
