Verify Authenticity of a Website with Comodo Verification Engine

Because we use many online services for our day to day needs like Paypal, ebay, banking services, etc, we need to be given prime importance to the authenticity of the service and of course our online security also. Even though the majority of web sites will be offered legitimate businesses, some sites exist to deceive you, by convincing you that they are legitimate. You need to know how to recognize what is real on the Internet and what is false. You need Comodo VerificationEngine.

VerificationEngine is a browser plug-in that lets you identify the legitimacy of a website. The software is compatible with all Windows versions (Windows 2000/XP/Vista) and supports Internet Explorer, Firefox and AOL browsers (unfortunately, currently there is no support for Chrome, Opera and Safari)

You don't need to do anything else after installing VEngine. When you browse the Internet simply move your mouse over the websites main logo and if it's verified as authentic, then you'll see a visible 'trust indicator' in the form of a green border around the outside of your display. Also note that the logo in the task bar will also display a green border.

VerificationEngine conveniently provides a pop-up indicator each time you move from a non-secure http session to a secure https session. For High Assurance web sites you will see the name of the Certification Authority who issued the SSL certificate and the name of the entity owning the web site. Conversely for Low Assurance certificates you will be presented with a warning to remind you that the web site cannot be authenticated.[via]
