Site Security

Your right to privacy and security while shopping online is critical. That’s why use Secure Socket Layers from SSL certificates support both industry-standard 128-bit (used by all banking infrastructures to safeguard sensitive data) and high-grade 256-bit SSL encryption to secure online transactions. The actual encryption strength on a secure connection using a digital certificate is determined by the level of encryption supported by the user’s browser and the server that the Web site resides on. For example, the combination of a Firefox® browser and an Apache 2.X Web server enables up to 256-bit AES encryption with certificates.Encryption strength is measured in key

length—number of bits in the key. To decipher an SSL communication, one needs to generate the correct decoding key. Mathematically speaking, 2 to the nth possible values exist for an n-bit key. Thus, 40-bit encryption involves 2 to the 40th possible values. 128- and 256-bit keys involve a staggering 2 to the 128th and 2 to the 256th possible combinations, respectively, rendering the encrypted data de facto impervious to intrusion. Even with a brute-force attack (the process of systematically trying all possible combinations until the right one is found) cracking a 128- or 256-bit encryption is computationally unfeasible.
