During the enrollment process, you will need the following information:
To start the enrollment for an SSL certificate, go to Symantec certificatess.
Once Symantec has validated the information provided, you will receive an email with installation instructions and a text file containing your approved SSL certificate.
Upon completion of the enrollment process, Symantec will authenticate your certificate application to verify that your organization exists and is registered with the proper government authorities. Symantec will confirm that:
The organization name submitted with the CSR must match the business registration certificate for the organization. In the case of EV SSL certificates, the country, state and locality must match the location where the organization is registered. For example, Symantec is a corporation registered in Delaware, therefore, the CSR for EV SSL certificates must list Delaware not California where the servers may be located.
Do not use any shift characters in any of the enrollment fields. If your company has an & or @ symbol in its name, you must spell out the symbol or omit it in the enrollment field. An error 105 in CSR generation is usually caused by a character such as @, #, $, or % in one of the enrollment fields.
The locality is the city or town. State or province names must be spelled out without abbreviations, “California,” for example. Countries must be specified by the two-letter country code without punctuation: US for the United States, CA for Canada, etc.
The Common Name is the Host + Domain Name. It looks like "www.symantec.com" or "symantec.com".
Symantec SSL certificates can only be used on Web servers hosting the Common Name specified during enrollment. For example, an SSL certificate for the domain "symantec.com" will receive a warning if accessing a site named "www.symantec.com" or "secure.symantec.com", because "www.symantec.com" and "secure.symantec.com" are different from "symantec.com".
