2001 Tech Tip: Home Network Security

January 2001 White Paper

This tech tip contains a discussion about home network security.

Abstract

This historical document gives home users an overview of the security risks and countermeasures associated with Internet connectivity, especially in the context of "always-on" or broadband access services (such as cable modems and DSL). However, much of the content is also relevant to traditional dial-up users (users who connect to the Internet using a modem).
