OTR localhost AIM proxy 0.3.1

Rated /5

Off-the-Record (OTR) Messaging allows you to have private conversations over instant messaging by providing:
– Encryption
– 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);
This is a localhost AIM proxy: you run it on your local computer, and
tell your AIM client to connect to it. It can be used with almost any AIM client in order to participate in Off-the-Record conversations.
Note: This version 0.3.1 of OTR localhost AIM proxy is still missing the following: *Username/password authentication to the proxy

  • Having the proxy be able to use outgoing proxies itself
  • Support for protocols other than AIM/ICQ
  • Configurability of the proxy types and ports it uses
