+An option to provide feed services with encryption can be offered.  Encryption
+addresses the need to keep any potential future sensitive data private (e.g.
+secure logins to feed servers) and also as a "best practices" implementation.
+Encryption, even in the absence of sensitive data will raise the confidence level
+of potential deployment sites.  Such practices are also a component of "defense
+in depth" which is designed to raise the level of effort needed by an intruder to
+such a level that network penetration becomes uneconomical.
