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Notoriously outdated in MINT repository.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.

The must-have plugin for Pidin and the reason I keep it as my IM client. Brilliantly secure.
