Apologies if this is the wrong forum but my query is regarding certs and thought this would be the best area to seek support. It may or may not be related to letsencrypt.
Recently, one of my friend has been asking me about some cert names he saw on a stranger’s laptop using google chrome. As you may know that google chrome doesn’t show cert names/company name (anymore) next to the address bar, which is why he’s curious to know about this.
As you may see in the images, there are random names next to google domains like DE_2, UK, FR_1. (PS: since i’m a new user, i’m allowed to post only 1 image, but hope you get the idea)
If my knowledge isn’t wrong, firstly these aren’t google’s EV/CAs. But more surprisingly, how can some one setup these names next to a domain that of google? Is this even possible? Sorry but this has been troubling my friend for some time now hence thought of posting here.
