The Covid-19 pandemic has seen us all become all too familiar with video conferencing tools as we’ve switched to work-from-home. Zoom, Webex, GoToMeeting, and Microsoft Teams are all part of our daily work routine now.

We assume that all these services are secure and the content of our web conferencing and collaboration is encrypted and safe from eavesdroppers. But is it really secure? And where is all that data stored anyway?

In this third installment of Packet Detectives, industry-renowned SharkFest presenter and all-round Wireshark guru, Betty DuBois, takes an in-depth look at a web-conferencing session to find the answers to these questions, and shows how you can do the same for the web conferencing tools you use.
