I agree. Is there anything out there that can do dial-up encryption for
slip/ppp for many different platforms? (some sort of a SLIP/PPP
interface for RSA for example, or PGP. Something which has already been
ported to several different platforms). IOW, something that is feasable
for a corporation where the people dialing in are on DEC Alphas, Indy's,
Apples's, DOS, Windoze, OS/2, linux, etc. Obviously something like
SecurID is out because it does NOT encrypt everything.
