I'm not a company and do not represent one, but I would like to have a green bar on my website for several reasons. One of them, for example, is that I want to ensure that the information displayed in the page is really from me, and any other reasons to ensure trust for anyone who's reading it. I know that these types of certificate are called Extended Validation Certificates. I googled how I could get one as a individual and I found this. It says here that I could get a OV. But it will not say if I'll get a green bar or so.
How can somebody, say, a journalist, get a green bar cerficate for its blog to ensure that its his real blog? How can a security analyst ensure that it's his website that people are visiting? How can someone ensure that a person is not visiting a URL thats similar to yours? How can I know that I'm not accessing for example googIe.com instead of google.com? (some URLs do really look alike when some letters are replaced by similar ones).
I can think of a lot of applications for this, in that they do not need to be a company but need to be trusted more than a simple automatically generated certificate.
