In order to use the EPP web site, you must use Internet
Explorer, version 6.0 or greater, Firefox, version 2.0 or greater, or any compatible
encryption, your data is protected automatically at the 128 bit level because of
the Global Server Certificate that is installed at our site. This certificate can
convert 40 bit browsers, while communicating with our site, to 128 bit level access.
This prevents your personal information from being read by others on the Internet
while it is being transmitted between your Web browser and the EPP Web site. We
recommend that you use the Firefox 2.0 or Microsoft Internet Explorer Version 6.0
or later versions. Browsers typically store/save pages displayed on your monitor
to your hard disk. This can allow others to see your personal information if they
have access to your machine. When you are operating in the SSL mode, this automatic
saving or caching can be turned off. You should verify caching is turned off before
Click TOOLS in Firefox and choose Options. Then click the tab labeled Advanced. Then the cache option. Change the Memory Cache and Disk Cache settings to zero.
Click VIEW in Microsoft Internet Explorer and choose Options. Then select the tab labeled Advanced and click the button labeled Cryptography Settings. Be sure that the box labeled "Do not save secure pages to disk." is checked.
While the National Finance Center works hard to protect your privacy, you also play a role in protecting your personal information. There are a number of steps you can take to ensure that your online experience on the Internet is safe and secure.
A warning dialog box will be displayed when you connect to the EPP web site. Before you can logon, you must acknowledge the dialog box by clicking the 'OK' button. The purpose of this box is to to protect both you and the National Finance Center. It fortifies our ability to identify unauthorized access attempts. We apologize for any inconvenience, but we hope you agree that one extra click is a reasonable price to pay for increased security. If you have an EPP User Id, or have signed up for one, you are authorized to access the system.
