I believe Microsoft's answer to MITM attacks on a local LAN is to
implement IPSec on your computers.  If you implement the correct IPSec
policy, then I would say that RDP would be 100% secure.  Even if you
don't want to turn on IPSec for your whole LAN, you could create a
policy to sign traffic on port 3389 between the computers that you're
RDP'ing with and it would eliminate the possibility of MITM attacks
completely.

Hi All,

I was just curious to know how secure is Remote Desktop Protocol on the 
local network? I know that this protocol is prone to MITM attacks.But
has 
Microsoft addressed this issue in the latest RDP client?

Thanks in advance.
