Description

This article is from the Secure Sockets Layer Discussion List FAQ, by Shannon Appel SAppel@consensus.com with numerous contributions by others.

6.1.1) I just downloaded a new version of Netscape's browser, and it doesn't have 128-bit encryption. What version(s) of the browser have 128-bit encryption?

This is not an official statement by Netscape, and Netscape has not
reviewed this for accuracy. For additional information, please see:

All versions of Netscape Navigator and Communicator, except "Preview
Release" versions, are available in two flavors: a "domestic" flavor
with 128-bit encryption for use in the USA and Canada, and an
"export" or "international" flavor with only 40-bit encryption.
(There is also a third flavor of Communicator 4.x available for use
in France.) Preview releases are only available in the export flavor.
To get 128-bit encryption, you must download the U.S. flavor.
