Microsoft IIS Web Server SSL Certificates

IIS 7Microsoft™ Internet Information Services (IIS) web servers are premium, world-class web servers Microsoft™ has developed to offer sustainable competition to other web server marketers such as Apache, O’Reilly, and Sun Microsystems.

A wide variety of SSL certificates are capable of securing IIS web servers. IIS typically requires the use of bundled SSL certificates. Here is a list of SSL certificates that are fully-compatible with IIS web servers.

EV SSL Certificates

These certificates represent the most stringent effort to verify the legitimacy of a web site and the business or organization that owns it, to prevent online fraud. EV SSL certificates are premium SSL certificates with visible security features such as the Green Bar, providing additional visible evidence to the web site’s visitors that the site is protected and the business or organization has been completely validated.
