https://github.com/jitsi/docker-jitsi-meet Jitsi Meet on Docker - We are testing this here, but only because we can control the network flows, e.g. we can stand up servers and clients and have them connect directly rather than bouncing through other people's servers. I have not done a security assessment yet. It was not security that drove us to test it out, in fact, I am worried about how tightly maintained WE can keep it, vs. having an entire team like Zoom or Microsoft.
