The web client connects to the listening port and displays the desktop using JSON and JPEG image encoding. The communication is authenticated using Digest method and the connection can be made through HTTP or HTTPS.

However, it can be enhanced with Google Chrome Frame to make it fully compliant with ThinVNC Access Point.
