The Microsoft UAM provides a superior method for encrypting the passwords that you use to log into Windows AFP Servers. The standard Apple UAM provides only minimal encryption (if any) so your password could easily be intercepted on the LAN or Internet. Although the UAM is not required, it does provide secure encrypted authentication to Windows 2000 Servers running Services For Macintosh.
