Server Gated Cryptography (SGC) enables 128 or 256 Bit SSL encryption (depending on the browser, operating system and host server), the most powerful SSL encryption commercially available. When an SSL handshake occurs between a client and server, a level of encryption is determined by the browser, the client computer operating system, and the SSL Certificate.
High level encryption at 128 bits is over a trillion times a trillion stronger than 40-bit encryption! A hacker with the time, tools, and motivation to crack 40-bit encryption would require a trillion years to break into a session protected by an SGC enabled certificate.
The following legacy browsers and operating systems fail to step up to strong encryption without an SGC enabled SSL Certificate:
