Private networks are a closed loop of systems that may or may not connect to the internet, but communications between terminals and end-points are strictly between members of the same network. It is possible to use TCP/IP to build a private network, but what’s important is data is sent directly from one computer to another without going around the world (which is how the internet works – hence the name www). If your data gets passed around before it reaches its destination, then the possibility of interception is high. That is why there’s a worldwide movement today for end-to-end encryption. This article asks the question: is encryption necessary for private networks? There are a few cons to using encryption, but if all the workstations are within a trusted system, do you still need it?
