Zoom claims on its official website that they offer end-to-end encryption on its website.
“Zoom’s solution and security architecture provide end-to-end encryption and meeting access controls so data in transit cannot be intercepted”, according to the company’s website.
However, a recent report by The Intercept reveals that video calls on Zoom are not end-to-end encrypted. Instead, only the text messages shared on the platform follow the security protocol.
When the company was asked for a clarification, it said, “Currently, it is not possible to enable E2E encryption for Zoom video meetings. Zoom video meetings use a combination of TCP and UDP. TCP connections are made using TLS and UDP connections are encrypted with AES using a key negotiated over a TLS connection.”
