OTR allows you to have private conversations over IM by providing:
- Encryption
- No one else can read your instant messages.
- Authentication
- You are assured the correspondent is who you think it is.
- Deniability
- The messages you send do _not_ have digital signatures that are
checkable by a third party. Anyone can forge messages after a
conversation to make them look like they came from you. However,
_during_ a conversation, your correspondent is assured the messages
they see are authentic and unmodified.
- Perfect forward secrecy
- If you lose control of your private keys, no previous conversation
is compromised.
This is a Pidgin plugin which implements Off-the-Record (OTR) Messaging.

Notoriously outdated in MINT repository. For the latest updates of this and other packages add: sudo add-apt-repository ppa:jonathonf/backports

Still works, still good for its purpose. Layout in the plugin interface could use a brushup.

The total score is not bad. But there is still work to do.

Nagszerűen, önműködően (kulcsgenerálás manuális) titkosítja a szöveges kommunikációt.
