User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.01; Windows NT 5.0) Build Identifier: I received an unusual requirement from the credit bureaus, Experian. As we know, Mozilla is no longer a web browser by itself but of anything. The request is that the file be 128-bit encrypt when saving the inquiry data to the hard disk. The purpose of this is to protect the sensitive information from hacking or unauthorized access. For the sake of this, just test it with any webpage you visit and save it. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Go to any website. 2. Save any webpage with either the "Save" option and/or "Save As" option. 3. Save it to where you want to save it to. Actual Results: File is saved with no encryption features. Expected Results: Save File with encryption when requested or required. Decided to put this down as Request for Enchancement. Internet Explorer doesn't even have this feature either. Encryption Keys??? I dunno!
WONTFIX. This is just plain silly. Whose data is it? If we are talking about people inside Experian looking at random credit reports, then Experian should use an encrypting file system or something similar. If we're talking about home users accessing their own credit reports, then it's their data - let them decide what they want to do with it, and what restrictions they want to put on it. Otherwise, you're going down the road of mandated access controls and mandatory DRM 'for the sake of the users' - better make sure we disable the Print function in case they print off a copy, too...

Not a problem! Experian is well, Experian! I'm still floating on the idea about the Java and other stuffs where I can make it more compactible with everything.
