The video conferencing app Zoom has soared to success with a hike in its usage due to the ‘Work from Home’ regime forcing everyone to work/study from home via video conferencing.
Zoom has also acknowledged that the company’s “end to end encryption” marketing practices masked the truth.
AES-256 encryption was meant to be implemented to keep video calls secure, but instead, a substandard AES-128 key in ECB mode was actually in use. Encryption remains a sticking point that the company insists it is working on.
Zoom has tried to clean up its act, and quickly. To try and prevent Zoom-bombing — the hijack of meetings and a practice the US Department of Justice recently deemed a crime — meeting ID numbers will no longer be shown in address bars.
The Ministry of Home Affairs deemed the platform to be not safe but issued some advisory guidelines for those who still want to use it.
1. Password protect
When creating a meeting id, always password protect it in order to prevent unauthorized entry into the meeting. You can do this by going to the settings and selecting ‘Require a password when scheduling new meetings’ option.
2. Authenticate users
When creating a new event, you should choose to only allow signed-in users to participate.
3. Join before host
Do not allow others to join a meeting before you, as the host, have arrived. You can enforce this setting for a group under “Account Settings.”
4. Lock your meetings
lock your meeting to prevent anyone with the meeting id from entering randomly. You can access this feature by going to the ‘Manage Participants’ tab followed by ‘More’ and ‘lock’ once everyone has joined the session.
5. Waiting room
Use the ‘Waiting Room’ feature in Zoom to screen the participants before their entry into the session. This can be enabled from the Account Management section of the app.
6. Private meetings
In Zoom, there are two options to make a meeting private: require a meeting password or use the waiting room feature and control the admittance of guests.
7. participant screen sharing
No-one wants to see pornographic material shared by a Zoom bomber, and so disabling the ability for meeting attendees to share their screens is worthwhile. This option can be accessed from the new “Security” tab in active sessions.
8. Screen Sharing
Make sure that the screen sharing option is on “Host Only”. This lets only the host share their screens and nobody else.
9. Restrict recording feature
You restrict the recording feature so that the meeting cannot be recorded. Go to your recording Tab and disable Automatic Recording.
10. File Transfer
Navigate to the File Transfer option on the Settings tab and disable the option. This prevents the transferring of files that might be malicious during the session.
