Symantec Certificates Include

256 Bit Encryption

When a Web browser points to a secured domain, a level of encryption is established based on the type of SSL Certificate, the client Web browser, operating system, and host server’s capabilities. That is why SSL Certificates feature a range of encryption levels, such as "up to 256-bit". Strong encryption, at 128-bits, can calculate 288 times as many combinations as 40-bit encryption. That's more than a trillion times a trillion stronger. At current computing speeds, a hacker with the time, tools, and motivation to attack using brute force would require a trillion years to break into a secured SSL session.
