SSL Protocol Frequently Asked Questions

Which versions of the SSL protocol is Enterprise SSL compatible with?

Enterprise SSL is compatible with any browsers and web servers using SSL version 3 - the de facto SSL implementation. SSL version 1 and version 2 have been superseded by version 3 for a number of years, due to the security flaws found in these old versions.

All web browsers developed after Internet Explorer 3 use SSL version 3 (however still support older SSL protocol versions). If your web server is only capable of supporting versions 1 and 2 of the SSL protocol, we recommend you contact your web server software vendor for an update - these protocols are flawed.
