I can understand the desire for privacy, but you need to understand that using a webcam is essentially inviting someone to invade that privacy. I also think we all know there's something more to this than simple privacy concerns, but we're not asking about the specifics of what you're doing, just commenting that your paranoia level suggests you might want to rethink whatever it is you're doing.
Webcams are inherently insecure, that's just the nature of the beast. Learn a lesson from the entertainment industry. All the different copy protection methods they've devised have been broken, and usually within days of public release. There is no way around this, end of story. With a webcam, if one person can see it, anyone could potentially see it. They would have to know you're broadcasting and then care enough to eavesdrop, but it's possible, and there's no way around it. So whatever it is you're doing that has you all worked up, you might want to rethink. It's that, or accept that there's a chance someone will intercept the broadcast.
