Is End-to-End Encryption Available for Cornell Zoom Meetings and Webinars?

This article applies to: Zoom


Not currently.

While Zoom has recently (October 2020) introduced end-to-end encryption for meetings and webinars, users should be aware that, when activated, it disables many common features, including: join before host, cloud recording, live transcription, Breakout Rooms, polling, direct chat to other participants, and meeting reactions.

Because of this incompatibility with important features that many Cornell users rely on for classroom instruction and security considerations, the feature has not yet been made available to Cornell users. CIT Video Engineering and Event Services will review the possibility of offering the feature on an individual user basis at some point in the future.
