Encryption in Transit
About Encryption in Transit
When sending sensitive information across the Internet one should always encrypt the transmission. This protects the data from attackers sniffing the network connections and copying off your sensitive information. The good news is that protocols that are not encrypted have long been replaced with newer encrypted equivalencies. Below you will find a table of clear text protocols and the encrypted protocols that provide the same functionality.
|Clear text protocols||Encrypted protocols|
|VNC||Apple Remote Desktop, Windows RDP v6 or later|
|FTP/TFTP||FTPS (FTP over SSL) or SFTP (FTP over SSH)|
Further information on network encryption can be found on the Microsoft website.
