What is your favorite car? Ford, Chevy, Porsche? Do you like pickup
trucks? Or a bicycle?
You have to give us more information - if your only requirements are
network authentication of any sort and you need encryption, then web
server passwords and ssl work. Most people actually have some sort of
strong authentication or privacy requirment for their data. A Ford truck
is used for different purposes than a Porsche. Your requirements below
are for a bicycle.
