VPN or other solution?



Public WiFi connections are always somewhat insecure, but I will soon be traveling to areas where they are predictably insecure (if not reliably intercepted). I will need to access my DH mail and other non-DH web sites. Perhaps someone here can help answer these questions:

  1. If I use https protocol through my browser, do I even need a VPN, or is there still a MitM concern?
  2. If I use a VPN to reach DreamHost, that would still leave me without a solution to reach everyone else, right? (Other than https)
  3. Are there other solutions I should be considering?


I think the best solution is to use SSH and verisign certificates. :wink: I am not a specialist :stuck_out_tongue:
