AnyDesk uses TLS1.2 based encryption which is also used in online banking. Both ends of a connection are cryptographically verified. This makes it impossible to take over your AnyDesk-ID and pretend to be you.
Caution: TLS encryption implicate, not to DPI the transmission (break or resign the encryption). Your connection will be terminated, as this would violate the TLS encryption.
Other things related to the Troubleshooting with encryption:
- Your system clock must be accurate, if the time of an machine is to much of, the encryption can´t be veryfied.
- Older Network Hardware, Drivers, Security Suits and Firewalls can´t handle TLS and try to modify it, which will also abort the connection.
You can review the current encryption mode, verification status and client fingerprint by placing the mouse cursor over the lock icon in the status bar.
All connections use AES-128 bit encryption in GCM mode by default. Licensed versions of AnyDesk provide even stronger encryption.
The best security option we offer is setting up your own AnyDesk Enterprise Network. This way, no unencrypted data will ever leave your company's DMZ and you have full control over the encryption method.
