What is an organizationally validated certificate?
An organizationally validated certificate is one in which the validated identifying information includes the domain and information about he business entity that operates the Web site, such as its registered business name.
Organizationally validated certificates differ from extended validation certificates in that they are not necessarily issued in compliance with the extended validation guidelines.
Furthermore, the organizational identifying information they contain does not receive prominent display in the most popular browsers. If one of these certificates validates correctly, then the browser displays the padlock icon.
