Group Call End-to-End Encryption and the Challenges of Encrypting Large Calls – Abo-Talib Mahfoodh

Meta helps billions of users connect daily by providing real time communication services. Group call is one of these services were more than two users can join a call. A common way of supporting group calls is by leveraging Selective Forwarding Unit (SFU) server to route the media among the participants. In an e2e encrypted call, the server forwards the media without having the capability to decrypt them. In this talk we will discuss the methods to encrypt the media communicated among the participants and the encryption key negotiation mechanism. We will also discuss how to keep the call secrecy under various scenarios such as participants joining or leaving the call. As the call size grows (more participants in a call), there are increasing number of the challenges to keep the e2e encryption and the call secrecy under different scenarios. We will discuss these challenges and ways to solve them.
