Locating the required web browser software

Health First secure servers deliver data that is encrypted at the highest level possible.  This high level of data encryption places special demands on the web browser you use to access that information.  The following is a list of web browsers that will work with the Health First secure servers and the icons link to sites where you may download new web server software if needed.  Since 128bit security is a fairly new technology it is quite likely that your current web browser does not support this level of encryption.  Health First suggests that you download and install the latest version of one of the following browsers.

Netscape Communicator 4.0 or higher with 128bit strong encryption

Internet Explorer 5 or higher with 128bit strong encryption

128bit encryption is such a high level of encryption that the US government has placed strict export laws on these software products.  You will be prompted by both Microsoft and Netscape to register before you will be allowed to initiate a download.
