Posted: Mon May 04, 2020 6:14 pm
Connections to Ubuntu Desktop are not encrypted for Ubuntu 14.04 and 16.04. Starting from 18.04, there are multiple ways to enable encryption:
- For web browser, simply connect via "https" instead of "http" (https will also turn on websocket encryption as well)
- For VNC connection, turn on TLS option. Take tigervncviewer for example, click on "options"/"Security", in "Encryption" panel, unselect "None" and select "TLS with anonymous certificates"
- For RDP connection, session is encrypted by default.
