403.5

SSL 128 required

 
  Description  
     
  You need to access the page with SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) with 128-bit encryption for improved security. Some old browsers do not support SSL with 128-bit encryption.
 
 
   
  Example  
     
 
Windows
Server Error

403.5 - Forbidden: SSL 128 is required to view this resource.

The resource you are trying to access is secured with a 128-bit version of Secure Sockets Layer (SSL). In order to view this resource, you need a browser that supports this version of SSL.

 
 
Error messages will differ depending on the web server and if replaced by the web site designers.

A very old browser might cause this issue. If you are using a old browser consider an upgrade to something current to fix this. Old browsers are also a major security concern.

To get the latest free browser:

All current browsers support 128-bit encryption.

It is unlikely the web site owners will disable 128-bit encryption as suggested by the Microsoft note below.

  "403.5 - SSL 128 required" is only supported by Microsoft IIS (Internet Information Services) web servers.
