Netscape w/ 128-bit encryption for UW-2.1.2?

Post by Ti Ka » Mon, 08 Sep 1997 04:00:00

Hi all,

I am running UnixWare 2.1.2 on a system and would like to use
the Netscape Navigator Gold 3.01 binary with US domestic-grade
(128-bit) encryption.  I noticed that the system apparently comes
with both an export-grade version and US-grade version:


There is a symlink of /usr/internet/lib/netscape/netscape pointing
to the export version.  The /usr/X/bin/netscape is a shell script
that runs the export version.

The export version runs fine, but when I try to run the U.S. version
I get an error:

Netscape Navigator Gold (encryption): This program is not licensed.

So, the question is, how do I license this binary?  Any help would
be greatly appreciated!

Ti Kan telecommunicated:

You need a license for the SCO Strong Encryption Supplement.

The Supplement is on the OSR 5.0.4 CD-ROM; I haven't got UnixWare running
at the moment, but I suspect it's on the UW 2.1.2 CD-ROMs as well.

I presume the charge is zero, or minimal, and available, as *usual*,
only to residents of North America.



1. ANNOUNCE: Fortify for Netscape v1.2.1; worldwide 128-bit encryption

Sydney, Australia. (25 Oct, 1997).  Fortify for Netscape, version 1.2.1,
with support for strong e-mail encryption (S/MIME) and 1024 bit RSA keys
has now been released.

Fortify for Netscape is a system that provides world-wide, unconditional,
full strength, 128-bit encryption to users of Netscape's Web browsers.
If you routinely use Netscape's export grade Web browsers (i.e. the ones
that are available on the net), then you need Fortify.

This new version supports two significant improvements to the strong crypto
in the 4.x Netscape web browsers - namely long RSA keys (1024-bits) for key
generation, and strong S/MIME encryption for your e-mail messages.
These improvements are in addition to the 128-bit SSL services already
provided by Fortify.  The release is of importance to all new and existing
users of Fortify.

Version 1.2.1 is available on both Unix and Windows 95 and NT immediately.

Fortify costs nothing to download and use. Nil. Zippo. Zilch.  It currently
supports most, if not all, of the non-beta versions of Netscape Navigator
(3.0x) and Communicator (4.0x), that have been released on the following

        Alpha DEC-OSF
        Mips SGI-Irix 5.x and 6.x
        Sparc Sun-Solaris 2.x
        Sparc Sun-SunOS 4.1.3_U1
        x86 BSD, FreeBSD and BSDI
        x86 Linux-Elf
        x86 Microsoft Win95 and WinNT

Full details about availability, copyright, download sites, latest news,
and an FAQ guide can all be found at the Fortify web site:-
