Title

Firefox Clamps Down on Weak Encryption

Summary

Having strong encryption isn't just a requirement for good security. Increasingly, it is a requirement for doing business. For example: an encryption protocol known as Diffie-Hellman has been steadily rising in popularity as a replacement for TLS. Sites which use a weaker 512-bit version of Diffie-Hellman keys, however, are vulnerable to an attack known as LogJam. Now, Firefox, the popular internet browser, is beginning to block sites that use these low-security keys.
