VNC is explicitly not secure. As regards a VNC app, what's wrong with 
the standard vncviewer? It's in the Debian archive, so I assume that 
it's equally available for SuSE. If you want security (which you should 
have, if you're using VNC over the internet) then you should *not* have 
a machine accessible via VNC over the internet. Instead, allow SSH 
access to that machine, and then tunnel a VNC connection over the SSH 
connection. If that is complete gibberish, then I can explain in more 
detail :-)
