[jitsi-users] Peer to peer encrypted chat.


#1

Hello,

What I am trying to do is peer to peer encrypted voice/chat without someone
listening in the middle as it is in skype/google. Which account or how to
acomplsh this using jitsi? For example while jitsi states that it is peer
to peer encrypted, i have no trust in this considering it has interface to
google talk, which is the second least trusted IM platform after skype, for
me anyway.

Thank you.

Hi Steve,

as Jitsi is able to use OTR you can use any account you like. I for example
have a friend added via our google talk accounts, if i enable OTR i can
clearly see the encrypted content which gmail/gtalk recives, only the jitsi
client is able to decode it.

The only precondition is that you verify the key of the person you are
speaking to via an different (tamperproof) channel. Like print it and
exchange it face to face if you want to go this far.

Regards.
Carsten

Steve,

Maybe this page will answer some of your questions:
https://jitsi.org/Documentation/VoiceCall

The page is still in progress, but as soon as it is done it will be
listed in the User Documentation.

Steve,

Just the other day I performed some quick testing with jitsi video and
audio chats and a packet sniffer. Although XMPP traversed the server
(even with clients within the same LAN), video and audio chat
established true peer-to-peer.

Beyond this, you are much better off using ZRTP with PFS (as is
implemented) than leveraging encryption keys you can't trust.

You can register for an XMPP account on jit.si, and establish voice
and video calls with other jitsi users.

Hope this helps,

Matt
