Ok, do not get me wrong I’m not ranting or being rude or sarcastic.
It seems that my posts are ignored for some reason and I think I know why its because there is no answer to my questions and it feels like I’m talking to myself.
For such a great project/community, I do not see much going on?
As I have said before I am an expert on making chat clients and have been doing so since yahoo chat shut down in 2007 so I know great smile methods to stop hacking and trolling witch trust me is already a massive problem.
The first thing on any devs mind when making a chat client is security first and it seems to be totally missed on jitsi not unless I’m missing something out that I don’t know about but a little shield is not going to cut it in the rooms.
I could give you a number of ways to protect the rooms but the simplest way is a text doc in the admin page which does not have much on it, A whitelist it is like a firewall for the room.
Passwords are such an old way of protection and you have to remember the public are not smart on computers so a whitelist is the best way inside or and a password.
if I get a reply from this ill be amazed lol but the most important thing is being totally missed and could even be the downfall of this client.
Just add a lot more admin options server side and user side and you will make it.
starting with a simple whitelist watch is about 6 lines of code.
when the user is kicked he can not see the room to change the password, for example, same way as if blocked on Facebook.
Make a good control panel with great security options and you will go far but if this keeps being ignored it will be taken over by someone else, I have seen it happen so many times over the years.
Many thanks for reading this and let us try and push this topic to the top.
