Secure Protocols: Encrypting Exchange

Enabling encryption in Exchange adds extra security by encrypting all the traffic between Outlook and Exchange. By default, all modern Windows computers that are part of a Windows 2003 Active Directory (which is the case with UT Dallas) use Kerberos to encrypt authentication between the server and your computer. However, once the authentication process is complete, the rest of the information travels across the network in plain text. By selecting encryption for all data, everything you do with Outlook will be encrypted, including calendaring, notes, journals, etc.

Enabling encryption requires one change in the configuration of Outlook. Click on Tools/Email Accounts. Select Microsoft Exchange and click on Change
