Part VII: Appendixes > Setting Up Security

Setting Up Security

One of the most discussed topics in the computer industry is security. You hear about security and the Internet. You hear about LAN security. You hear about voice-mail security. Microsoft Fax enables you to securely send fax messages using public key encryption developed by one of the leaders in security, RSA Inc. Microsoft Fax also enables you to password encrypt and use digital signatures on your messages with confidence. The security features, of course, extend only to sending digital messages and files, not to printed or hard-copy faxes. These types of faxes are still subject to the eyes of anyone who happens to be walking by the fax machine when your transmission comes through.

Note

A digitalsignature is an electronic version of your signature. For most business transactions, such as purchase requests and employee time sheets, a signature is required to process the request. You can use a secure digital signature to "sign" requests, time sheets, and other sensitive documents.
