10.1. Use the best possible security for a dial-up connection

If you're working from home or another location away from your main office, and you're working with sensitive data, you probably want the best possible security for the connection. This means preventing hackers from intercepting your account or password data, ensuring that someone else can't get in if they do compromise your account, or perhaps even preventing specific types of traffic through the connection.

Windows 2000 offers some excellent features for ensuring high security for dial-up connections. You can use various levels of encryption or use certificates to ensure secure and digitally verified authentication. Smart cards offer another means of preventing unauthorized logon from stolen accounts. Another feature, IPSec (IP Security), lets you secure the traffic coming to and from your computer, making it less susceptible to interception.
