Hi all,

We plan to issue EV SSL certificate to government website to prevent spoof site that there is a big problem in China.

But the problem we faced is the too short period that they like to buy 5 years cert. Sure, I know it is not allowed even in OV SSL.  Could we move EV re-vetting for governments to 39 months (3 years + 3 months) because they are “permanent” and the information doesn’t change very often? This rule can be for .gov.cn domain only in China, for .gov in USA etc.

I checked many USA government sites are using EV SSL like CIA and UK Companies House.

Best Regards,

Richard Wang
