What is a UC Certificate (UCC)?

UC stands for Unified Communications and is a newer type of SSL certificate that is designed and primarily used for securing Microsoft Exchange 2007 and Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007 products. The main difference between a UCC SSL and a standard Multi-Domain certificate is that a UCC can secure both internal network names and external domain names as well.

What is the difference between 128- and 256-bit security?

That is the difference between the key lengths used once an SSL connection has been established in the browser. 256-bit security is indeed a bigger key however that does not necessarily mean it is more secure. Experts and research agrees that 128-bit is equally secure for the foreseeable future. The only reason 256-bit security is needed is if it’s specifically required by your industry or company policy. All our certificates have the ability to use either bit-length, which one you use is a matter of server configuration, NOT certificate support.
