iRemote is one of several remote control products on the market. While many of these solutions are expensive, this one is free. There are other solutions that are free, but the number that are both free and have encryption built in are few. If you are setting up some remote control for your own uses, TightVNC is one I would strongly consider. The only reason I would not go with TightVNC now is because it requires one to tunnel through SSH in order to have end-to-end encryption -- apparently a future version will add more security. iRemote is good for people you have to support who don't have any technical skills on their end -- which is one reason you're probably going to be supporting them. :-)
