Encryption

Access to Xpra's sessions over TCP and unix domain sockets (see network connection) can be protected using authentication modules but those do not protect the network connection itself from man in the middle attacks.

For that, you need encryption. There are two options supported at present:

  • SSL (preferred)
  • AES (deprecated)

You can also use SSH as transport, which will provide encryption and usually also authentication.
