The thawte SSL Web Server Certificate offers comprehensive authentication procedures (domain name and identity verification). It also offers 256, 128, 56 or 40-bit encryption depending on your client’s browser capability and the cipher suite installed on your web server. This ensures that information is kept private while in transit between your web server and your clients’ web browsers. thawte now provides SSL certificates to customers who use Internationalized Domain Names – the first and only Certification Authority to offer this. Internationalized Domain Names (IDNs) provide a convenient mechanism for users to access websites in their preferred language. Customer Confidence in the Green Address Bar Extended Validation SSL gives Web site visitors an easy and reliable way to extend their trust online.The address bar turns green and displays the name of the Extended Validation certificate owner. The security status bar shows that the transaction is encrypted and the organization has been authenticated according to the most rigorous industry standard. thawte’s systems are now able to recognize and issue certificates that contain local language characters in all certificate fields. What this means is that you can now buy an SSL Web Server Certificate to secure the website you have hosted on an Internationalized Domain Name. An example of the certificate content for a certificate for an IDN is shown below. Not only will your secured Internationalized Domain content be reflected in the certificate details, but your thawte Trusted Site Seal will also reflect your local language content. thawte systems are also fully internationalized across all certificate enrollment details including Code Signing Certificate product lines.
