Encrypted tunnels using SSH and MindTerm


Author: JT Smith

LinuxSecurity: “Businesses, schools, and home users need more secure network services now more than ever. As online business increases, more people continue to access
critical company information over insecure networks. Companies are using the Internet as a primary means to communicate with travelling employees in their
country and abroad, sending documents to various field offices around the world, and sending unencrypted email; this communication can contain a wealth of
information that any malicious person can potentially intercept and sell or give to a rival company. Good security policies for both users and network
administrators can help to minimize the problems associated with a malicious person intercepting or stealing critical information within their organization. This
paper will discuss using Secure Shell (SSH) and MindTerm to secure organizational communication across the Internet.”
