What browsers support the encryption used by the Sepsis Data Collection Portal?


The latest SHA256 hashed certificates are used by the Sepsis Data Collection Portal for the encryption of all data being transferred from a site visitor to the server. The following Web browsers support SHA256 certificates (but please see the note below):

  • Internet Explorer 7+ with Windows XP SP3+ (Please note IE browsers depends on the Operating System)
  • Safari with Mac OS X 10.5+
  • Firefox 1.5+
  • Netscape 7.1+
  • Mozilla 1.4+
  • Opera 9.0+
  • Konqueror 3.5.6+
  • Mozilla based browsers 3.8+
  • Chrome 26+

Note for Mac and Windows XP users: While Macs running Mac OS X 10.5+ support the newer SHA256 hashing algorithm, Chrome and Safari users may experience difficulty verifying the root certificate. If you are a Mac OS X 10.5+ user having trouble with the site certificate and receiving a security error, we recommend using the latest Firefox browser for Mac OS. Windows XP users using Internet Explorer 7/8 may experience similar issues and if so, we recommend using Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome.
