Summary: This Recommendation adopts the CA Browser Forum specification to support very high assurance trust and security mechanisms for transactions between end users and organizations that provide high value or critical services or code. Based on ITU-T's X.509 digital certificate, it adds an array of identity proofing, technologies, and protocols to significantly enhance trust. This includes the creation of an encrypted transport layer path with the trusted party. Browser providers, and increasingly other client-based software vendors now support the capability on an estimated 60 percent of computers worldwide.
