[jitsi-users] Public keys


#1

Hi All.
Great package-sorely needed in these woeful times. I scanned the FAQ and couldn't find the answer to my query so here goes my quick noob questions about the encryption keys used by Jistsi. Are they RSA/DSA etc and how long is the key length that Jitsy uses for key generation. Is it possible to use my own keys?

Regards

The keys used depend on the encryption protocol used. Different protocols
are used for different functions. Some examples:
- end-to-end encrypting a text message with OTR
- end-to-end encrypting an audio/video stream with ZRTP
- encrypting the communication of your Jitsi instance (client) to the
messaging server you happen to use with TLS

If you have your own OTR identity key then yes, I believe it's possible to
use that with Jitsi. All other keys I can think of are ephemeral, hence
there is no reason to "use your own" keys.

Hope this helps,

Alex
