[jitsi-users] Question on features?


#1

Good day, I looked in the history of the group and didn't found
anything so I'll ask here, thanks in advance!

I installer jitsi at work and home, but I use dual boot machines in
each place, Slackware and Windows 7, that means I have 4 installations
of Jitsi, one for each computer, is there a way to export the
fingerprint so new partners don't have to authenticate me every time I
switch computer?

Also, I noticed that with OTR chat messages are indeed encrypted, but
chat history is being kept in plain text on the computer, and can't
find the place it is stored to delete it, is there a way to encrypt
the chat history or if not, just delete the messages?
Thanks, and good day!

I second this request. Right now I just copy around my
sip-communicator.properties file, but this gets tricky with paths
and such.

This is correct. OTR protects against the network, not the end points. In
options, you can uncheck 'log messages'. Or just delete the jitsi/log
directory.

We had a plan on supporting configuration storage on iCloud and similar
services but this would probably make no sense OTR fingerprints as it
introduces a new attack vector.

In the mean time one way of sharing the same configuration among all
instances is to use provisioning:

However, this still means that you'd need to upload your changes manually.
