I'm not aware that any IE version supports encryption of more than 128-bit.  What leads you to believe you need 256 bit anyway?

agree with jhance, even ie 5.5 only support up to 128 bit encrpytion. Not even netscape IMHO.

I'm also unaware of any web servers that support 256-bit encryption.  So even if a 256-bit IE were available, it would be of no added value.

I believe that you can increase your encryption by installing a third party software package.  I am only familiar with PGP.  Go to PGP.com and you should find the information you are looking for.

Thanks for the replies.
I was just wondering about the support.. Any ways.. because my relative is a little concerned about the security, so i thought this might help him.. By the way.. how long does it take for a 128 bit encryption to be cracked.
I have heard around 4 months...!!!????
 
Thanks..

It depends on WHO is doing the cracking, how many resources they have available to them, and how much money they are willing to allocate to the problem.  

The situation is that there are easier, cheaper, and simpler methods than cracking 128-bit encryption today. A would be hacker could hire a burglar to break into your home or business and steal your bank records tonight.

See http://www.distributed.net for some interesting real-life cracking information.  Even with literally millions of computers working on these problems it still takes a long time!!
