OV, EV certificates


Let’s Encrypt (in future) create a API for identify and EV verification for domains?


LE will not support EV, OV certificate.

Thank you

I know about that. I talk about future.

…and I’m pretty sure @stevenzhu was talking about the future. The problem is automating the validation, which doesn’t strike me as possible. But it’s been discussed here many times; a search will find a good bit of that discussion.

“Will Let’s Encrypt issue Organization Validation (OV) or Extended Validation (EV) certificates?
We have no plans to issue OV or EV certificates.” from https://letsencrypt.org/docs/faq/


Plus EV/OV certificates are of questionable value. Even amazon and google don’t use them.
