url encryption for Cosmos openworkbyhandle
Cosmos allows to open a case in a new browser tab using right click on links with 'openworkbyhandle' event. The url in this new tab appears in plain text with the case id in parameters. Is there a way to keep that url encrypted so that it cannot be tampered with?

@NALIN not really - the goal of the url encryption is to avoid url tempering that would allow to run any action or activity by modifying the url. The Pega platform will enforce that only registered and allows actions are performed by the user.
In this case, the url generated on links that support right click is a valid action and it is using the encrypted pzuiactionzzz but the object handle is passed to the url as parameter. All links should have a clear and semantic url like /case/caseid. In the new Cosmos React based architecture, link will be semantically readable and will be similar to using the semantic URL feature.
