Hi Richard

I faintly remember that the password protection is 128 bit encryption so I
assume it's equivalent to SSL in it's strength. I think this is the reason
the US Government won't let MC/Rev be exported to some countries. I guess
the critical thing is that you make it difficult for someone to work out the
passkey. Once that's public then you offer no protection at all.

By the way I think Rev does this for their order form so that's one use.

Regards

Monte
