SECURE SHOPPING - How It Works

A Relationship of Trust

MedRep Express is registered with Thawte Consulting, the second largest Certification Authority worldwide, trusted since 1995. Thawte delivers critical infrastructure services that make the Internet and telecommunications networks more intelligent, reliable, and secure.

The encryption strength of a digital certificate is determined by the level of encryption supported by the browser used to connect to a web site and the server where the web site resides. This means that users may connect at 40-bit, 56-bit or 128-bit depending on the browser version they are using.

Thawte uses digital certificates which have been developed that provide 128-bit encryption for browsers which are defaulted to 40-bit or 56-bit encryption. These certificates include technology known as Server Gated Cryptography (SGC) which automatically steps-up these browsers to the 128-bit encryption level.

Cryptographers consider 128-bit encryption practically impossible to crack (it would take millions of years with the fastest computers to try all the combinations). With 128-bit encryption you can rest assured that you will be able to exchange information with us using the strongest possible encryption.

Secure Socket Layer
When you place an order through our online shopping cart, your personal information is protected by Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption technology, the industry standard security protocol for encoding sensitive information. SSL creates a shared digital key, which only lets the sender and the receiver of the transmission scramble or unscramble information. To everyone else, the SSL transmission is indecipherable.

Encryption is based on the mathematical scrambling and unscrambling of messages. The type of encryption we use assigns two keys - one is a public key and one is a private key. When you send us a message, you use our public key to encrypt your message. Once we receive your encrypted message, we use the private key to decode it. The same key cannot both encrypt and decrypt information. So, information encrypted using the private key can only be decrypted using the public key, and vice versa- ensuring the security of your information.

This technology, together with our other security measures, protects your personal information as it moves from your computer to our server.
