Who can obtain an SSL certificate?

OpenSRS partners with leading providers so you can offer a variety of SLL certificates, helping your customers find option product that best suits their needs. 

Some certificates are available to individuals or groups that are not officially an Organization, however some of the higher certificates involve organization validation by the Certificate Authority in order to complete the sale. With those certificates you must be an organization that is registered and is able to be verified.

Currently, residents of the following countries are not able to order or receive SSL certificates from our SSL partners:

  • Cuba
  • Iran
  • Syria
  • Sudan
  • North Korea


These restrictions are due to the inclusion of these countries on the US Government Denied Lists. The listed countries are subject to change. It is also not possible to issue an SSL certificate to any person or organization listed on various US Government Denied Persons lists (e.g. http://www.bis.doc.gov/dpl/default.shtm).
