Is Back to my Mac an encrypted and secure connection? Is there a good technical explanation how it works? Would you recommend to use it to connect to a home server via VNC?
From Apple's website:
Back to My Mac uses these methods to protect your security:
- IPSec and SSL encrypt and secure communication between your Macs and the Back to My Mac servers. Anything you transfer between Macs is protected.
- Kerberos with digital certificates provide secure and trusted authentication to help verify identity. An added benefit: with Kerberos, you won’t have to enter your user name and password every time you connect to another Mac in your Back to My Mac network.
You can make your network even more secure by changing a few optional settings.
