[KB1208] What prevents the shared content from being seen or accessed if the application on the Base Unit is hacked over the network? Is this possible? (FAQ)

Short Description

There are two levels of security on ClickShare. First of all, the network between the Base Unit and the ClickShare Buttons is protected with WPA2-PSK authentication. In the unlikely case that this would be hacked, we arrive at the second level of encryption: the content itself that is sent over the network is also encrypted. Next to that, it is also interesting to note that we are not sending the file itself over the network, but only snapshots of the laptop’s screen.
