@evening - wireless encryption I already answered. Encryption won't protect you from other people who are legitimately on the network unless you use enterprise level encryption (which is hard to setup) and authentication just establishes that people should be able to be on the network.

wired would be fine as long as the network is switched, which pretty much all are now. You would have to look at the documentation for the routers and switches that are used in the network to see if it is switched or not, but most are now.

@evening - it is probably your easiest bet for a wireless connection if you don't trust the other people on the wireless network, but at that point it brings up the question, why are they on your wireless network.

@evening - you can make it so that wifi uses different encryption per connection, but this requires user level accounts for connecting to the wireless and the use of the enterprise levels of WPA or similar. It is also non-trivial to setup. With a common password, anyone with access to the network will be able to get at the contents of everyone else (on the wireless network)'s packets as they go across the wireless network.

@evening - you lost me now. If you are asking about people on a wired network within the home network, a good switching based router should isolate each system and only pass along information that needs to go to each IP internally. As long as it isn't going through any hubs (which send to all connections) you should be fine internally.

comment Double encryption with different keys
that is incorrect, it will still be easily detectable even if not human readable. It is fairly easy to pull encryption keys out of compiled code.

Do you care if the users of the program can get at it? The SDK and user keys will be accessible to the systems that have the software installed.
