End to End Encryption

End-to-end encryption:

End to end security is an added layer of application security. Zoom can encrypt all presentation content at the application layer using the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) 256-bit algorithm.This is done at a user level, so once enabled, all meeting would be required to be AES encrypted.

Today, end to end encryption is designed to facilitate HIPAA based compliance requirements. 

  • It will force encryption across Zoom running on desktop, mobile and Zoom Rooms, as well as for H.323/SIP endpoints
  • It will also force end-to-end group messaging.
  • Encryption may impact performance as it requires more processing cycle on the end devices.

How do I enable end-to-end encryption:

To enable end-to-end encryption, you must log in to your account at zoom.us and then go to Profile Settings

Select "Edit" under "Security" and enable "End-to-end encryption"

End to end encryption icon:

There is a lock icon when a meeting has end-to-end encryption enabled.
