Encryption on the XMPP Network - Participation of our Jabber-Server

Nikolaus Polak's picture

(Not only) Because the biggest XMPP-compliant server (talk.google.com), which doesn't use server to server encryption, seems to leave the XMPP federated network (GTalk -> Hangouts), we want to make the XMPP network more secure:

This year, 2014, we'll require on some test days to connect other servers only encrypted to ours. If you've problems on these days to reach some of your contacts from other Jabber/XMPP servers, please contact us, or even better: the admin of the other Jabber/XMPP server.

The schedule:

January 4, 2014 - first test day requiring encryption
