@cathal is the encryption core open though, or is just the protocol open?
My understanding is that WhatsApp does not use the FLOSS implementation of Signal proto, instead rolling out their own with the help of moxie.
*NOTHING* stops them from fscking this implementation up at some point or removing it entirely at their discretion.
I'd *love* to be proven wrong about this.
