SGC and its Limited Value

Evaluating the Need and Implications of Server Gated Cryptography

Server Gated Cryptography (SGC) was created to step up weak encryption levels in browsers exported from the US from the mid-90s through 2000. While the need for the technology was clear at the time, those browsers are no longer in use today. Despite this, SGC is still seen by some in the industry to have value. The reality is SGC is not necessary with modern browsers and is merely a Band-Aid over the more serious vulnerabilities of the outdated browsers it is designed to help. Instead of using SGC to facilitate the use of outdated, insecure software, we should be encouraging users to use the latest, patched software.
