I realize that there are several good encryption plugins in the file listing. However, these plugins are only useful if my friends also use Miranda IM.
To fix this problem, I would like for a new encryption plugin to be developed based on the Off-the-Record Messaging library.
From their site:
This library looks poised to become the standard way to provide cross-platform encryption of instant messages. Adium X on OSX now has native support, and a plugin is available for GAIM. An OTR proxy is available for clients that do not natively support this, but it would be nice to see a Miranda plugin. Are there any other Miranda users or developers that would have any interest in a plugin for this?Off-the-Record (OTR) Messaging allows you to have private conversations over instant messaging by providing:
No one else can read your instant messages.
You are assured the correspondent is who you think it is.
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.
