Is context.items secure method of transferring data?

P: n/a
When passing values from one page to another using context.items collection
& server.transfer, how secure is this data? This is using the notion that
you add an item to the context.items collections

I am thinking that since you are processing the source page on the server,
then transfer to the destination page, all of this is happening on the
server, and so there is no way of tampering with it. Am I correct or way
off?

If this is secure, then it seems it would be ok to send sensitive data this
way. So this scenario would work:

If on the source page, I grab sensitive data from a datasource, and then do
a Context.Items.Add("name", value),
and on the receiving page I get that value, there would be no way of having
it intercepted since it never left the server????

Thank you Sir or Madam!
