Jitsi doesn't use e2e encryption in the group mode.  They just use DTLS.
They do direct DTLS between clients, but the devs haven't explained how
to verify the keys used by the clients.  If you use Meet, the server
does full decryption and reencryption to all the clients for group chat.

So, the best thing about Jitsi is that you can self host to ensure the
security of the server.
