[jitsi-users] OTR in jit.si chatrooms?


#1

I have brought a few friend to use jitsi with jit.si accounts instead of
Skype, but now i see the OTR icon is disabled in the Chatrooms of Jitsi.
Why?
If zrtp works for group audio/video chat why is there no OTR for group text
chat?

Greetings
Carsten

Hey Carsten,

I have brought a few friend to use jitsi with jit.si <http://jit.si>
accounts instead of Skype, but now i see the OTR icon is disabled in the
Chatrooms of Jitsi. Why?

text chat?

It's not a simple problem.

To put it simply: In the case of Jitsi-hosted conference calls, Jitsi can establish a direct secure channel with every participant. Of course the organiser hears everything, but that's not an issue because they are one of the participants.

With multi-user chats, we are connected to the server using tls. So the chats don't simply go out on the clear, but here too, the central component is capable of seeing every message.
