Hello to all:
Speaking of 128-bit security, could someone please provide a white paper,
links, etc, to what the term actually means? It has the connotation of
being a cloud (like "the Internet"). I'd like to find out the details of
how it actually works - what it actually does.
Additionally, what resources, links, white papers, etc, are there to
detail how various Windows flavors utilize the security enhancement in
ways other than with web browsers? For example, if via mapping network
drives, what specifically happens? What communication takes place
without 128-bit vs with?
Thanks for any/all links and leads.
