SecuXabber Secure Chat Client


PLEASE NOTE: This is a BETA-version which still may have some bugs. In case you experience some troubles please contact the author or report a bug at https://sourceforge.net/p/secuxabber/tickets/

SecuXabber is a Open-Source-variant of Xabber XMPP (Jabber) client with multi-account support. It is highly customizable with lot's of features and a strong end-to-end encryption with keys held locally only. To enable this encryption and to get rid of the "[unencrypted]" message during communication you have to exchange keys with your chat partner:
- open chat window of active connection
- select menu button and then "Export own key"
- transmit this key viy Bluetooth to your chat partner
- let him select menu button and then "Import other key"
- do all the same in reverse direction
-> now communication with your chat partner is fully encrypted while you have full control over your key!

Furthermore SecuXabber allows to group contact list by groups, accounts and its sources are published under the terms of GPL at https://sourceforge.net/projects/secuxabber/

SecuXabber provides all functions of Xabber plus:
- asymmetric end-to-end encryption of chats
- strong keys with 4096 or 2084 bits size
- secure key exchange via Bluetooth
- extended protocol on top of standard Jabber-protocol, so it works with every normal XMPP server
- quick position information to chat partners

To use the SecuXabber encryption two SecuXabber clients need to
1. log into XMPP/Jabber server
3. add each other to contact list
4. go to contact and send own public key to other user (via bluetooth and face-to-face check to ensure the key is not stolen, exchanged during transport or given to wrong person)
5. import received public key
6. start chatting with encrypted messages and extended delivery confirmation!

Beside of that it supports all the Xabber-features too:

- Multiple accounts

- Contact search
- Integration into phone's contact list (call from the chat and chat from the phone contact list)

- Stream compression (not all servers supported for now)

Not bad I use my own xmpp-server. On first try I didn't find how to set custom connection server if it differs of jabber domain name. Please add 'advanced settings' on initial account setup. Also please make stored passwords encrypted. Question: How to use my own keypair?
