Jabber Messenger
Jabber is a secure way to communicate.

What is Jabber?

The structure of the XMPP network is very simple: there are XMPP servers, there are many of them all over the world, for example jabb.im. You choose a server for yourself, register on it in the same way as registering on any site. At the time of registration on the server, an account is created for you in the form of a login and password.

Most XMPP servers require only a username and password to register. No binding to a mobile device, mail or other personal data. A new account can be registered in a matter of seconds, and at least one hundred accounts can be used simultaneously on one device.

The XMPP server is bound to a domain name, and your XMPP account will look like this: unique_name @ domain_server_name, for example, [email protected] This is similar to email, and many users get confused when trying to send an email to the addressee. In some cases, you may come across the abbreviation JID (Jabber ID), which is a synonym for an XMPP account.

By registering on one server, you can communicate with all XMPP users, regardless of which server they are registered on.

To communicate over the XMPP protocol, special client programs are used. There are many of them, and they are available on all popular mobile and desktop platforms. The most famous of them are Pidgin , Adium , Xabber , Psi+ .

The difference between the Jabber network and other messengers is in decentralization, or the absence of a single center. You yourself can configure and maintain your server, store or not store logs, define a policy for data collection and cooperation with law enforcement agencies.

For the same reason, Jabber is difficult to subject to government censorship.

We consider XMPP to be by far the best solution when you need the highest level of protection for instant messaging communications. It's just that XMPP doesn't have strong encryption by default, but you can add it.


Jabber registration

Right here you can register your Jabber on the D2W.IO server and try how it works!

@d2w.io

Alternative ways of registration.

If the server settings allow you to create an account directly from the client. When adding an account, check the box Create this new account on the server.

Accept certificates

Fill in the fields as in the example and click OK

Encryption of correspondence

We recommend one of two options: PGP or OTR. Here we will take OTR as an example - it provides a high level of security and is easy to configure. However, when using it, messages in the logs are not encrypted - so for complete reliability it is better to disable them.

If your XMPP client does not support OTR out of the box, then you can get the plugin for your operating system here Downloads

For Linux (Debian / Ubuntu) OTR plugin Pidgin is easily installed with one command: sudo apt install pidgin-otr

Since we have already downloaded and installed the plugin, it can be activated from the client. Open Pidgin, click "Tools" and select the "Plugins" item.

Activate the Off-the-Record (OTR) plugin.

Next, we need to configure this module. To do this, at the very bottom of the list of modules, click "Configure Plugin".

In the module settings window, we first need to generate a key for our account. Select the account for which you want to create a key, and click "Generate".

Keys are generated quickly, but sometimes there is a slight lag at this step. Do not be afraid! Pidgin doesn't hang, it's just a little busy. When the work is over, press Ok and you will see your "fingerprint" of forty characters (five groups of eight characters each).

Now check the boxes below:

  • «Enable private messaging»;
  • «Automatically initiate private messaging»;
  • «Require private messaging»;
  • «Don`t log OTR conversations».
Well, the last checkbox is Show Otr button in toolbar . It simply adds a chat security and interlocutor authentication button to the interface.

Tor connection

If you have Tor Browser installed (or Tor is installed in Linux), then you can configure traffic forwarding directly from the client window in the "Proxy" tab.

After launching Tor Browser or installing TOR on Linux using the apt install tor command and our Jabber client, you need to open the "Tools" tab and select the "Settings" item there, and in the settings open the item "Proxy" . Check the box "Use remote DNS with SOCKS4 proxy" , and in "Proxy type" select "Tor/Privacy (SOCKS5)"

For Host , enter 127.0.0.1 and select port 9050. This is the standard Tor port, although a variation of 9150 is sometimes encountered.
