GPG Support

Postby hanebambel » Wed Dec 08, 2004 9:01 pm

Hi!

I don't know if already someone asked for it (used the search feature, but did not find anything), but is it possible to add support for GPG encrypted messages?

This was discussed on the old forums and the consensus seemed to be that until a standard is reached among the various clients and/or protocols there won't be support (Trillian has its own method, some use GPG, others who knows).

HTH.

i wish someone would port the Trillian encryption over... I know it's not an ideal encryption method and, hell, the Trillian folks might not even allow it, but I get yelled at by my Trillian friends every single time I talk to them... :)

Actually, I think the real ideal situation is for Trillian to use something that's actually standard -- like GPG. :) However, GPG in IM's isn't very standard, but it's a good choice, and it IS standard in, say, emails.

Fire uses GPG... haven't looked at their implementation though.

I would really like to the gaim-encryption gaim plugin mature to the point we could use it.

From the gaim FAQ: http://gaim.sourceforge.net/faq.php#q99

They have good answers on a lot of things :)
