Easy secure remote access ?

Being newbie with Linux I have a basic question. I have cable modem access to the net with a Dlink router at home. I have a couple windows pc's along with the new linux box i put in last night.

What's the easiest way (with some reasonable security) to access the home linix machine from outside? I was hoping for access through web browser to make it easy from anywhere?
