Secure Communications with Jabber

In this talk, Peter Saint-Andre will discuss the existing security features of Jabber technologies and how they are being extended to ensure complete privacy of communication over the Internet.

When you chat with a friend in your living room or a colleague in your office, you expect the conversation to be private. Unfortunately, your online conversations may not be private -- it all depends on what technology you use.

There are many reasons why Jabber is more secure than existing IM and presence technologies, so Peter will explain those and how they help prevent spam on the Jabber network.

He will also talk about the Intermediate Certification Authority that Jabber recently launched to issue free digital certificates for Jabber servers. Finally he will talk about the end-to-end encryption technology they are developing for complete privacy of instant messaging.
