Information Systems Security for CPARS

Encryption of the Data:

Data is encrypted by either hardware devices or software encryption modules.  In the CPARS web site, this encryption is done by cryptographic modules in both the browser and the web server.  Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS) Publication 140-1 defines encryption standards and  The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) certifies encryption products.  A browser certified by NIST is required to access the new secure site.  Netscape Communicator 4.x and higher (U.S. version with strong encryption) is certified by NIST, as is Microsoft Internet Explorer 4.x and higher.

Your current browser is:

Browser Name:
Browser Version:

If your browser name is "Netscape" and your Browser Version is "4.x", and there is a "U" following the operating system name, you are prepared for CPARS access. The "U" indicates Netscape's U.S. security version with strong encryption. An "I" indicates the International version with weak encryption and is not acceptable.  If you are not running Netscape 4.x (and higher) U.S. version, or Microsoft Internet Explorer (or higher) with 128-bit encryption, you should upgrade your browser as soon as possible.

 If your browser name is Microsoft Internet Explorer, please click on the "for information on..." link below for information on configuring your browser. 

NOTE:  Downloading software onto your personal computer may conflict with your command's standard PC configuration and system accreditation.  If this is the case, please contact your Information Center or System Administrator to acquire the correct browser version.
