Hi All, I'm doing a project on quic, i'm really interested to learn more about quic and its multiple versions, does any one how wireshark is able to decryp the quic packets ? i have gone through multiple RFC versions and still not able to understand properly how we can decrypt. Any help would be much appreciated. Regards Cibin

Use the source Luke, admittedly there is a lot of it, so to help you the dissector for QUIC is here.

Thank you so much Grahamb, i have been looking at the code, how can i get more info on this function ? any idea where this function is defined/works.

  if (!tls13_get_quic_secret(pinfo, from_server, type, hash_len, secret)) {
         *error = "Secrets are not available";
         return FALSE;
