RE: HIPAA_Compliance

Folks,

I don't mean to toot my own horn, but is anybody aware of PKZIP's
encryption and authentication features? 

These were Ron's requirements: inexpensive, easy to deploy,
convenient to use, and easy to train staff, encryption solution.

As opposed to using this forum for giving a sales pitch I would simply
ask you to visit www.pkware.com and explore the possibilities.  There
are HIPAA case studies and other materials for you to look at. 

Also, I would invite anybody with any familiarity with the PKZIP Secure
product to let me know what you think: good, bad, or indifferent.  Good
topic by the way!

If you are in a windows enviroment, you can use IPSEC policies within
the domain security policy to encrypt traffic on the LAN.  This is of
course with a very high overhead.  I am not deeply versed in HIPPA
policies.  You can reduce some of the overhead by just encrypting
traffic between domain controllers.  I know that also if you uses Cisco
routers for your WAN, they can be configured to encrypt that traffic as
well.

What are you trying to encrypt and from what points?

i.e. PHI in e-mail - suggest Kryptiq, Sigaba, PGP enterprise solutions
depending on your needs you could also use desktop - ssl file
transfer/gateway decryption  VPN -works for communications over telecomm
lines for business partners, subsidiaries, etc.

secure ftp - for file transfer

web file repository - ssl file transfer

Your soultion wil ldepend on what you are looking to encrypt, why and
the to/from points.

Hello to All,

In order to provide security solutions for HIPAA compliance, encryption,
though not required, seems to solve several of the problems. Would
anyone have some suggestions for an inexpensive, easy to deploy,
convenient to use, and easy to train staff, encryption solution? Other
thoughts?
