    What does the underwritten warranty in a SSL certificate refer to?

    Re: SSL query

    Hi,

    Underwritten warranty is to the end users who use a site secured by an SSL certificate. It is not the warranty to the purchaser of SSL.

    It is like, if you, the purchaser, turn out to be fraudulent and an end user of your web site loses money because the certificate authority didn't properly validate you, then the certificate authority will compensate the end user.

    Practically this never happens, so it is not very important how big the warranty is when you buy an SSL certificate.

    Thanks,

      Exactly. It would rarely happen. And majority of the times the end user is not even aware of such privileges.

      And more importantly the purchaser would not even care about the warranty either since it is of no use.
