Encrypting Network Data During Copy Items and Install Packages
Remote Desktop can send files for Copy Items and Install Packages via encrypted
transport. This option is not enabled by default, and you must either enable it explicitly
for each copy task, or in a global setting in Remote Desktop’s preferences. Even installer
package files can be intercepted if not encrypted.
To encrypt individual file copying and package installation tasks:
In the Copy Items task or Install Packages task configuration window, select “Encrypt
To set a default encryption preference for file copies:
In the Remote Desktop Preferences window, select the Security pane.
Check “Encrypt network data when using Copy Items” or “Encrypt network data when
using Install Packages,” as desired.
Alternatively, you could encrypt a file archive before copying it. The encrypted archive
could be intercepted, but it would be unreadable.
