Easy-Connect is encrypted for your protection
A lot of people assume that they can shave a few farthings
off of their cost by simply connecting using insecure standard Telnet, with
data sent in the clear.
To begin with, if you are sending any data that is medically
oriented or about minors, you are almost certainly breaking the law of your
country. Similarly, if you are sending any credit card data, you are subject
to fines of $100,000 per instance. If you are sending any personal data whatsoever,
you expose yourself to privacy invasion lawsuits if it ever becomes known. Finally,
you expose the data of your company to sniffing.
Easy-Connect connections are protected. The transmission
streams are triple-DES (168 bit), or single-DES (56 bit) encrypted, subject
to US munitions export regulations. Similarly, the authentication handshakes
are performed via SSL using the strongest encryption your PC permits.
Finally, our secure midpoint is just a data exchange point.
We receive packets and hand them off to another client. Nothing is ever stored
These processes make each Easy-Connect session a private
session, rather than one observable by snoopers.
