Jabber’s 11 year birthday and todo-list for 2010

Peter Saint-Andre blogs [1]¬†about Jabber’s 11th anniversary and what the focus will be for the XMPP community during 2010. Here’s his list:

  • End-to-end encryption
  • Finalizing Jingle-based file transfer
  • Multi-user Jingle for voice conferencing and the like
  • Distributing chat rooms across servers
  • Bridging between serverless mode and server mode (very useful in distressed networks)
  • Reputation systems for XMPP servers and users

All of these issues are important. End-to-end encryption is something that the SIP community should spend more time trying to handle and I can only wish for some cooperation between SIP and XMPP in trying to find a security architecture for end-to-end communication – involving both encryption and authentication.
