Secure dialup

Secure dialup

Post by Nigel Harwo » Sun, 20 Dec 1992 19:20:05

We are thinking of setting up a dial in facility but would like
it to be more secure than just a password but don't particularly
want to have the hassle of dialback.  I know you can get encrypting
modems but we want to use our existing ones.  Is it possible to
get a little gadget that goes between the modem and computer at
each end and which will do some sort of encryption?  This would seem
like an ideal solution.  We could set up the dial in modems with these
and then issue matching ones to those who needed them for home use
on a needs basis.

Anyone know of someone who sells something like this?
Anyone in Australia by chance?

Any feedback appreciated.

1. securing dialup???

On a redhat 6.0 box, I have configured a dialup server, using mgetty, as
well as dailup ppp server. I have applied all the basic security steps
listed in the excellent article "Armoring Linux" at .

But what do I need to do in addition to that for dialup securty?
