Allows deniable private conversations using Pidgin

Off-the-Record OTR Messaging allows you to have private conversations over instant messaging by providing

  • Encryption No one else can read your instant messages.
  • Authentication You are assured the correspondent is who you think it is.
  • Deniability The messages you send do not have digital signatures that are checkable by a third party. Anyone can forge messages after a conversation to make them look like they came from you. However, during a conversation, your correspondent is assured the messages he sees are authentic and unmodified.
  • Perfect forward secrecy If you lose control of your private keys, no previous conversation is compromised.
