MPPE (Microsoft Point-to-Point Encryption)
MPPE (Microsoft Point-to-Point Encryption) is a method of encrypting
data transferred across Point-to-Point Protocol (PPP)-based
connections or Point-to-Point Tunneling Protocol (PPTP)
virtual private network (VPN)
connections. MPPE uses the RSA
algorithm for encryption and supports 40-bit and 128-bit session keys, which
are changed frequently to ensure security. MPPE does not compress or expand data.
