    Level of Encryption for the Remote Control Session

    The level of encryption used during a remote control session depends on the security type chosen in the agent configuration. For NT security/local template, the encryption strength of the operating system determines the level of encryption during the remote control session. For Microsoft (R) Windows 2003 Server and Windows XP, the default level of encryption is 128-bit.


    For all other security types, remote control sessions are obfuscated, but not encrypted. Obfuscation is an RC4-like algorithm that scrambles traffic between the remote control viewer application and remote clients.
