Symantec Announces Validation Changes

Symantec and its family of brands (Thawte, GeoTrust) will no longer accept Scoot.co.uk as a third-party telephone directory for Organization Validation or Extended Validation certificates. Symantec determined this third-party telephone directory was not properly verifying the submitted information before making publicly available. Symantec still accepts other third-party directories in the UK such as Dun & Bradstreet, Yell.com, InfoBel, 118.com, 1818.com, etc. Please pass this information along to your employees and customers.
