How to test new e2ee?

Hi all,

I’ve just installed the latest debian unstable packages and I notice there’s now HIPS (e2ee).
I went through the readme here but I don’t see any instructions on how to enable e2ee so I can test it out on my server.

Any hints?


Dear All,
thx for this amazing and so far unique feature (real e2ee with multiparty video & opensource…) - congrats!
I am very much looking forward for the final implementation of key exchange/negotiation.

I have very same inquiry as Peter Villeneuve (using latest nightly on own debian deployment):
e2ee currently works only on with latest Chrome Canary (see screenshot below),
so the question remains how to activate e2ee within own Jitsi Meet deployment & using Chrome Canary (or Chrome 83 if released) endpoint?
kind regards, MS


You can find more information about e2ee feature in the Jitsi TheCall video :
So to test e2ee option in you own Jitsi-meet you need chrome 83+ and activate in chrome://flags/ this flag “Experimental Web Platform features”.
As Fippo said Chrome activate this flag by default for the “” domain that’s why it work directly.

Thanks for the info Damien.

How exactly does activate the Experimental Web Platform features by default on its domain?

I’m trying to replicate on my own installation and I don’t see how it’s possible to enable Experimental Web Platform server side?


I think it was done in Chrome side.
Maybe directly between Fippo and the Chrome team.

Ah ok, that would explain it.

I guess us “normal people” will just have to wait.
