What is a 'Scalable SSL Certificate'?

Scalable certificates offer a range of encryption bit length. DigiCert Digital Certificates are, by default, 2048 Bits in encryption strength. However, some older web browsers only support an encryption length of 256-bit, 128-bit, and 40 bits. Rather than force those customers to upgrade their browsers, the DigiCert certificate scales down, thus offering the customer the maximum strength they can support.
