Possible snake oil?

I ran across this at the web site of a New Orleans area web authoring
company. I checked with a friend of mine of long standing on this list,
and he assured me that the information was probably false.

(Here it is...)

Well? Do _any_ of you know of a 1024-bit encryption standard for the world
wide web currently in use? According to these people, they're using it.


Should I have been less coy about the corporation name?
