Secure RDP

Any recommendations on implementing a highly secure RDP solution?

I already have VPN in place and am looking for additional options.

i think nodemaster said it well.

Has there been security issues with the current RDP?

One option is LogMeIn:

Data packets should already be encrypted by the use of the IPSec tunnel. As long as the user accounts on the Terminal Server were created using complex passwords, that should be sufficient.

Thanks tailoreddigital...I was going off of the "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" rule. :)

Yes, nodemaster, but that's a corollary to the "gee, we've always done it that way" rule...not among my favorite rules. :)

Join.me is another possibility.
However, I am also a believer in "If it ain't broke, don't fix it"
Why do you need an alternative?

RDP already uses ssl 128 bit, can be set by gpo to not downgrade the ssl to 64 bit, and only use high encryption

Best practice use NLA (network level authentication) (windows 7 and above) if available.
Don't expose rdp ports over the internet, vpn into the network and then use rdp

See Wikipedia about NLA http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Network_Level_Authentication , it was introduced in vista. xp could use it, too, see http://support.microsoft.com/kb/951608 for a howto.
