VNC Enterprise Edition's user authentication phase is secure because it
takes place only after a secure (encrypted, tamper-proof, etc) connection
has been established between viewer and server. If session encryption is
not required then it is disabled immediately that the authentication phase
The older VNC Password authentication scheme is secure simply because it
uses a challenge-response protocol to verify the user's password, rather
than having to pass it from viewer to server.
