It is important to consider how sensitive data such as credentials and application-specific data are transmitted over a network link. If you need to send sensitive data between the Web server and a browser, you should consider using SSL. If you need to protect server-to-server communication — for example, between your Web server and database — you should consider using either IPSec or SSL.
