Abstrakt
WhatsApp is a widely adopted mobile messaging application with over 800 million users. Recently, a calling feature was
added to the application and no comprehensive digital forensic analysis has been performed with regards to this feature
at the time of writing this paper. In this work, we describe how we were able to decrypt the network trac and obtain
forensic artifacts that relate to this new calling feature which included the: a) WhatsApp phone numbers, b) Whats-
App server IPs, c) WhatsApp audio codec (Opus), d) WhatsApp call duration, and e) WhatsApp's call termination.
We explain the methods and tools used to decrypt the trac as well as thoroughly elaborate on our ndings with
respect to the WhatsApp signaling messages. Furthermore, we also provide the community with a tool that helps in the
visualization of the WhatsApp protocol messages.č
