WEB e-CERTIFICATE & SSL SERVICES
Identify yourself with your own Digital Certificate and secure your web site with a Thawte Secure Socket Layer (SSL) Web Server Digital Certificate.
It will enable SSL on your web server, thereby giving you the ability to communicate securely
with your online customers. SSL protects all communications with your customers, so you can
take credit card orders, protect sensitive personal information, and ensure that hackers cannot
detect your passwords. There are two types of these certificates.
1) SSL Server Digital Certificate (40-bit)
Thawte SSL Server Certificates have been engineered to provide the flexibility to
dynamically support 40-bit or 128-bit encryption, depending on the capability of the
web server and web browser being used. You can learn more about it by registering our "Trial Web Server e-Certificate (SSL)"
A Thawte SSL Server Certificate is capable of providing 128-bit-encryption
as long as you are running a 128-bit enabled server and your users are running
128-bit enabled browsers. If you want to be sure that the strongest encryption
is being used to secure ALL your web traffic [128-bit encryption], then it would be
advisable to use a Thawte SuperCert.
In order to make use of the Thawte SuperCert, your customers will need to be
using Internet Explorer 5.01, Netscape Communicator 4.7 or later browsers.
The number of bits for encryption depens on the version of web browser, for example,
Internet Explorer 5.01, Netscape Communicator 4.7 or later browsers can encrypt up to 1,024 bits.
