Are XML-RPC messages encrypted?

Hi:

If I use the XML-RPC client from xmlrpc.com - are the messages between the two communicating parties encrypted?

No.

You have two things to encrypt, the transactions and the transports. SSL is your transport, the individual xml requests and answers are the transactions (which I presume can be encrypted with some of the new specifications of xml-rpc).

Just use https:// URLs and SSL encryption should protect your XML-RPC messages.
