We are adding a new remote facility and are trying to determine whether to add a Child Domain to our existing forest or create a secondary forest.  I understand the security of the forest and only doing a one way trust for security of corporate file data, but what are the pros/cons of a child domain as far as the data being accessible under the schema, password recoverability (hacking).  What are others doing when setting up far away offices in regards to maintaining a highly secure network?
