Control over access to communication devices may not be effective in an online infrastructure unless access to the employed communication configuration is also restricted. Yet, many online infrastructures have communication devices located at a considerable distance from the central computer technology enabling connections through data networking. Consequently, access controls over communication devices may only be effective in an online infrastructure where alternative communication protection techniques are deployed.
As a specific instance where deployment of alternative communication protection techniques is required, many communication configurations are vulnerable to unauthorized access via the ‘wiretapping’ of channels carrying datum to and from message presentation centers. In order to combat this potential threat, controls that can be deployed to reduce the danger from ‘wiretapping’ include: fragmentation, intermixing, and encryption.
