Greetings, I'm trying to secure my login page with a certificate I got from godaddy.  nothing fancy by any means.  after I have everything set up, in IIS 7, I'm checking "Require SSL" option for the page I want to SSL, How about the "Require 128-bit SSL" sub option.  do I need to check that?

Hi,

that should work OK - but the user will see an error response if they attempt to access it by normal http.

>> How about the "Require 128-bit SSL" sub option.  do I need to check that?

only if you want to insist on 128 bit encryption (some older browsers and some countries) will only support lower grade encyrption - select that option to prevent them from access.

Cheers.

meverest, thanks for the insight.  regarding the 128Bit encryp.  if  older browsers are not a concern to me at this point, I can simply leave my settings as is and leave the 128-bit SSL unchecked?  Thanks.

yes, that is correct.

I'll say it again just to be sure:  If you enable any of those checkboxes, you simply prevent anyone from being able to access the resource by normal http - it does not make the resource magically show up as https.  If you want to see the resource, the client must explicitly request https://resource-url

Cheers.
