(From the CA/B forum, the green chrome that would be in IE 7 for EV SSL)

Help for phishing?  The CA/Browser forum has published a draft guidelin for Extended Validation SSL:

EV SSL is a “’voluntary ‘standard’ that would impose rigorous authentication policies via participating certificate authorities, who will be independently audited for compliance.  In return, websites with EV SSL would get special treatment in the browsers, including a “green chrome” in IE7 and an expanded security report showing the owner of the website.  (Existing domain validation and organisation validation certificates would retain the simple ‘padlock’ display).”
