128-bit encryption affects encryption of files on a disk if any, Internet
Protocol Security, NDIS wide area network connections, Secure Sockets Layer,
Terminal Services and I'm pretty sure it effects VPN connections as well.

Microsoft's Windowsupdate provides a patch for 128-bit OS security.
Besides adding 128-bit SSL security for web access via Internet Explorer,
what other communications/connections are secured?

Also, for those other connections, what types of protocols/encryption
methods are used?

Thanks.

Scott
