As people become more and more privacy conscious, the need for end-to-end encryption (E2EE) has become widely recognized. We study the security of SFrame, an E2EE mechanism recently proposed to IETF for video/audio group communications over the Internet. Although a quite recent project, SFrame is going to be adopted by a number of real-world applications. We inspected the original specification of SFrame. We found a critical issue that will lead to an impersonation (forgery) attack by a malicious group member with a practical complexity. We also investigated the several publicly-available SFrame implementations, and confirmed that this issue is present in these implementations.
