Communicator 4.7 International Versions Get 128-bit Encryption

Monday January 24th, 2000

Because of the relaxing of export restrictions on crypto code, Communicator 4.7 is now available with 128-bit strong encryption for international users. The new version is available - for 23 languages - on the Netscape Products Download Page.

Thanks to Ryuzi Kambe (who maintains the mozillaZine Japanese translation) for the news.

The Fortify software (free for personal use) patches your existing browser turning it into the 128-bit version.

Even if an official 128-bit version does finally turn up, it might still be worth using Fortify since it's a 400k download compared to 10+Mb for the full thing.
