Mozilla Crypto Released for Windows, Linux!

Thursday March 9th, 2000

The first crypto-enabled builds of Mozilla have come online. Currently there are Windows and Linux builds available - a Mac version will be available soon. Enabled in these initial builds are SSL, the Security Advisor, and IMAPS. Signed mail and encrypted mail are not yet implemented.

To try out the PSM (Personal Security Manager), first you need to grab a special version of M14. There are Talkback and no-Talkback versions available for Windows, and Talkback and no-Talkback versions available for Linux. After you have installed this build, run Mozilla and browse to the PSM page at iPlanet. You can get details on the release, as well as any special instructions you may need (and instructions for Linux if you are building the M14 build from scratch). Scroll down the page, and you will see buttons to install the PSM version for your system. Clicking the button will start up the XPI installation routine, and the PSM will be downloaded and installed. After installation, close Mozilla and reopen to use the PSM. You should be able to visit secure websites now, and view the Security Advisor (available from the Tasks menu).

The source code for the PSM has not yet been released. We will let you know when it is.

This is soooo awesome. I can now move to doing 100% of my browsing in Mozilla! The ONLY reason I was kicking up Communicator 4.72 was to access SSL sites (and to occasionally compare output differences for the sake of bug hunting). Now that I can access secure sites from Mozilla, I can stay within it for all my daily browsing needs!

Don't suppose anyone knows how to disable the messages that pop up every time you enter or leave a secure document...
