[Owasp-singapore] [security-77] Is Opera web browser being too strict in this case?

Thanks for the update, Ryan.

However, other browsers, such as FF and IE, seem to accept such short
key length as ok.

There seems to be no standard treatment of what is deemed as
insufficient and what is sufficient encryption between browsers.

Will like to hear the feedback from the group regarding this.

Regards
Onn Chee
