I have a question:

RDP is by default encrypted.
The current versions of RDP (Windows 7, Windows 10, Windows Server 2012)
uses Kerberos or TLS (aka SSL) for authentication.
Ans transport is compressed and encrypted.

If you really want to dive deep in the technical info,
You can find it on the Microsoft website:
