Each virtual venue has its own setting of stream encryption.  Even the
streams in a venue are not encrypted and another venue can be
encrypted.  If you establish a venue server, you will find a checkbox
(on/off) and a textbox (common key) on the setting window for each

Assuming VIC and RAT themselves are not cracked, the likelihood
depends on handling encryption keys by venue servers and venue
clients.  I do not know how it is secure.
