IEEE.org Browser Policy
For the most optimized experience, it is recommended that visitors view IEEE.org with one of the following browsers.
Other popular browsers and versions (including mobile devices) are also regularly tested by IEEE and, wherever possible, efforts have been made to ensure that key content and functionality are accessible. If your browser is not supported, you should still be able to access the site but may encounter some display problems.
For your protection, IEEE uses 128-bit Secured Socket Layer (SSL) strong encryption during your online sessions. You will not be able to access the IEEE.org site with browsers that do not support 128-bit encryption.
Encryption is a sophisticated way of scrambling all information transmitted online before it leaves your computer so that all information, including username, passwords, and any online financial transactions, are completely unreadable by unauthorized third parties. No transactional information will be transmitted without first being encrypted.
To verify that your browser is setup for 128-bit encryption see the following instructions.
All versions of Mozilla Firefox support 128-bit encryption.
The Safari browser displays a lock icon at the top right corner of the browser window when you're viewing a secure (https://) site. This symbol is absent when viewing an unsecured (http://) site. Safari can use both 40-bit and 128-bit strong encryption; the website determines which level of encryption is used at a given time.
All versions of Google Chrome support 128-bit encryption.
