[strengthening Trust in Jabber/XMPP Technologies -- concluded on 2008/01]

Jabber Technologies, as formalized in the Extensible Messaging and Presence Protocol (XMPP), are a set of decentralized, open technologies for near-real-time messaging, presence, and streaming XML (now being extended to address multimedia signalling and other advanced use cases). The focus of this project is to improve the security and trust characteristics of Jabber technologies.

The XMPP protocol is the specification of information interchange between a large group of Open Source and commercial applications, an alternative to AIM, ICQ, MSN, and Yahoo.

The XMPP protocol is maintained by the XMPP Standards Foundation which is closely related to the Jabber community.
