[jitsi-dev] XMPP server


#1

Hello Developers,

In light of Skype becoming more and more invasive via monitoring URLs and
maybe even usernames and passwords--all automatically--I'm considering
setting up my office with Jitsi and having employees create an @jit.siaccount
http://yro.slashdot.org/story/13/05/14/1516247/microsoft-reads-your-skype-chat-messages

My question is will Jitsi monitor URLs/conversations among its users? What
xmpp server does Jitsi use? I'm familiar with Prosody and Open Fire but
currently don't have a means to set this up at my office.

Thanks,
Sean

Um, if you're really worried about monitoring, why not run your own
XMPP server? The whole point of XMPP from its beginning was enabling
anyone to run their own server. :slight_smile:

Just download the Debian 7 DVD image and install that to your server

There are plenty of Jabber servers in Debian, I use ejabberd with TLS

What Peter said.

Of course you are welcome to use jit.si. Keep in mind however that, even
if we try to make it as stable as we can, jit.si is above all a
proof-of-concept service and we may bring it down every now and then
when we need to restart for maintenance, updates and new feature additions.

Cheers,
Emil

Oh, and another thing: please don't use jabber.org, which also started
as a proof of concept / developer-focused sandbox and now has 1.2+
million users. I speak as the primary admin for jabber.org. :slight_smile:

The best way to ensure security is to run your own services.

I appreciate the proof of concept that jit,si has created! I'll consider
setting up our own xmpp server. We're a small office so interoffice chat
isn't all that *necessary* anyway, just useful.
