Not in a Kerberos environment it doesn't, nor in an transport-mode IPsec

Related to that is connections where transport-level encryption
typically doesn't matter:  connecting over a cross-over cable is one

1. Get enough food to eat, and eat it.
2. Find a place to sleep where it is quiet, and sleep there.
3. Reduce intellectual and emotional noise until you arrive at the silence of
   yourself, and listen to it.
