Selecting the proper bit rate for a certificate

When submitting the info for a CSR in our Control Panel (for an SSL certificate), the bit rate will be 2048. When you go to the certificate provider you may see bit rates of 128 or 256 bit.

Don't let the differences in bit rates confuse you. The important thing to note here is that our stated bit rate of 2048 is the provider (server) bit rate. The certificate authority bit rates of 128 or 256 are the encryption rates for the actual communication channel (the browser communication). Those two values will not match.
