The good news is that stuff on native AS/400 is already encrypted as far as
400 security is concerned.  The challenge is that internet & PC standards
have various ways to communicate with computers in which security is not part
of the design.

So you generally have to look at stuff like FTP & Wireless & so forth to see
if this or that can be locked down & if it cannot, then the people at the
company know that it cannot & you either use it knowing the security hole, or
not use it & be safe.
