    SSL Cert's..

    How do places like Verio have their certificates automatically "approved" by browsers? What process do they have to go thru?

    Anyone have any idea?

    If anyone cares to share about this, they get a free SSL cert for a year

    Hello
    Its to do with the approval chain.
    Each certificate is signed by a master certificate and those are signed by another certificate.
    This goes back up the line to one of the CA's which has browser approval.

    Its a bit like the laying on of hands in ordination in the church.
    Its a sort of apostolic succession.

    Last time I looked it was about $50,000 to get a licence to use one of the root certifivates to sign your own.
