WebRTC is a technology that enables real-time communication between web browsers for information streaming, including text, sound or direct data transfer. WebRTC is supported by all major browsers and has a flexible underlying infrastructure. In this study, we review current state of WebRTC and analyse security shortcomings during acts of communication disruption, modification, and eavesdropping. In addition, we examine WebRTC security in experimental scenarios.
