WhatsApp End To End Encryption Demystified

  • Raul Siles
  • Tuesday, November 7th, 6:00pm - 7:15pm

WhatsApp finally implemented end to end (E2E) encryption less than a year ago. This talk will perform an overall review and in-depth look at the technologies involved in that implementation, and more specifically, the Signal protocol. The Signal cryptographic protocol is becoming the de-facto standard and widely adopted reference for secure (instant) messaging solutions, such as WhatsApp, Signal (TextSecure), Google Allo, Facebook Messenger, etc. The goal of the talk is to explain the history, evolution, design, security properties and features, technical aspects, numerous keys and cryptographic components of this complex modern protocol, plus other associated algorithms and protocols, trying to facilitate its understanding to non-cryptographers... ;o)
