Off-the-Record Encryption for Gajim
There are some bugs that can lead to accidently sending plaintext. It is recommended to use PGP or OMEMO instead. See OMEMO.
The plugin won't work with Gajim >= 1.0 as it was not ported to python3. There is no port planned.
This plugin provides experimental, potentially insecure support for the chat protocol indepentent OTR encryption.
OTR stands for Off-the-Record and is designed to provide encryption, authentication, deniability and perfect forward secrecy. See the creators' website otr.cypherpunks.ca for more information on the protocol.
Dont install the plugin from other sources than the Gajim Plugin Manager or Gajim Gitlab
You can install the Plugin via Gajim's Plugin Manager.
