SSL Security to Web Sites with IDNs

VeriSign to Extend SSL Security to Web Sites
With Internationalized Domain Names

August 18, 2008

As Local Language Domain Names Gain Traction, VeriSign Helps Internet Sites Everywhere Reassure Users With World's Most Recognized Trust Mark

Seven of every 10 people in the world don't speak English, but that isn't keeping them from using the Internet. Now, domain name registrants and Web site operators not only can reach users in their own language -- they can also protect their sites with Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) Certificates from VeriSign, Inc. (NASDAQ: VRSN), the trusted provider of Internet infrastructure services for the networked world.

VeriSign today announced that its SSL Certificates will now support Internationalized Domain Names (IDNs). IDNs display Web site addresses in local language characters, such as Sinitic characters used in China, Kanji symbols from Japan, and Cyrillic characters in Russia.

The move will bring the VeriSign Secured® Seal -- the world's most recognized trust mark -- to potentially millions more Web sites worldwide. Now, businesses with established brand recognition in non-Latin based scripts and languages can show visitors that their site is secured using industry leading SSL technology.

VeriSign® SSL Certificates enable an essential function for online businesses: secure information exchange. IDNs have been often regarded as a potential phishing tool because of the similarity of some foreign characters to Roman characters. VeriSign SSL Certificates can help protect both site visitors and site owners, by assuring visitors that the site they are visiting is the authentic site they meant to visit. By improving security to build trust with consumers, site owners can boost their visitor-to-sales conversions and lower their incidents of abandoned shopping carts.

"Internationalized domain names are gaining traction with the introduction of IDN-enabled browsers like Internet Explorer 7 and Firefox," said Michael Lin, vice president of SSL product management at VeriSign. "Providing the latest security protection is a key step toward achieving a globally interconnected Internet that serves linguistically diverse populations. For its part in this effort, VeriSign is pleased to extend the protection of VeriSign SSL Certificates to sites using IDNs."

VeriSign is the most respected and trusted SSL authority on the Web. More than 95 percent of the Fortune 500 -- and the world's 40 largest banks -- rely on SSL Certificates sold by VeriSign (including VeriSign's subsidiaries, affiliates and resellers) to meet their security needs.
