Conversations Open Source Secure XMPP Client for Android



This article on XDA-Developers focusses on encryption features of Conversations and an interview with developer Daniel Gultsch. Nice read!
Q: What motivated you to develop Conversations?
A: I am using Jabber/XMPP for many many years. Even back in 2009 I was able to use Jabber on my Nokia e71. Sometime around the year 2012 I switched to an Android phone, so I suddenly was unable to use Jabber. [...]
Q: Can you give three reasons why Conversations protects your privacy better than Whatsapp or Threema?
A: I don’t have to give my private phone number to strangers if I want to chat with them. I could have a private and a business account. I can disable the business account after my shift, to prevent my boss from annoying me during my free time. WhatsApp allows everybody to analyze my app usage patterns any time. (My boss could stalk me to investigate if I am using WhatsApp during my working hours or if I am using WhatsApp at night instead of sleeping and coming well rested to the office.) This is different with Conversations; Conversations also doesn’t upload my entire address book to Facebook.
Q: Is it allowed to compile Conversations on your own from your Github and use it for private use?
A: Of course. Not only private, also for business and everything else you want. It is also allowed to modify the code to meet individual requirements.

Dino in Debian experimental



What is Dino?



Dino is a modern IM client using XMPP (Jabber) with support for both OpenPGP and OMEMO. It looks very nice and can already be used for chatting and group conversations. It is, however, not yet stable nor feature-complete. If you are looking for something like Conversations (Android XMPP client), but for the desktop, Dino is for you. If you like to have something more stable and feature-complete, try Gajim instead. I use both! :~)





Dino is written in C and Vala, uses the GTK+ UI toolkit and looks best in Gnome, XFCE, or other GTK+ based desktops. I heard about planned versions for Windows and MacOS, too, but don't hold your breath.

How to install Dino on Debian?



Since yesterday, the Dino IM client is available in the official Debian repositories, but so far only in the "experimental" distribution. To install it, Debian users have to:
$ echo deb https://deb.debian.org/debian/ experimental main | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/experimental.list
$ sudo apt update
$ sudo apt -t experimental install dino-im


This should work on nine official and five unofficial architectures for at least unstable and testing. Not sure about stable. I'm pretty sure, that oldstable will not work.

Why the "-im" suffix for Dino in Debian?



There used to be another program, an "integrated MIDI piano roll editor and sequencer engine", by the same name in Debian. Many references to the old program still exist, so it would be problematic to recycle the name for a different purpose.

Happy chatting!

Why we don't publish at the Play Store



We got some requests recently, asking, why we do not publish #dandelion at the #GooglePlay.So here are our main reasons, why we don't plan to uploadthe app there currently.

First of all, we do not comply with Googles terms of service. Having to pay ~25€ to Google who did not write the app and does not respect your freedom nor your privacy on its platforms (Youtube, GMail...) just doesn't feel right. We believe, that our userbase is well aware of the privacy concerns that come with using Google's Services, so many diaspora* users actually get their apps through F-Droid (which is great). Second, if a user that does not know about F-Droid yet wants to use dandelion* and searches for it, they'll hopefully find out about the F-Droid project and may get in touch with free software that way. So by not publishing to Google Play, we hope to get more people to understand, use and appreciate free and open source software.

If you find dandelion* on the Play Store, please be aware, that you likely just found a version built by someone else. We can not guarantee that such a version has not been tampered with in terms of #malware, so we highly discourage you to use it. It should be clear, that we'll never charge you any money for using, downloading, sharing or modifying the app. Note also, that we won't support those versions.

If you want to dontate to the project to support the developers, and keep them motivated, please feel free to contact us :D As always, you can help us by submitting bug reports, code and/or translations on github and crowdin.
PS: We maintainers (@gsantner and @vanitasvitae) will soon have more time again to actively work on the app. The last weeks we were distracted with educational work, so here is some background information:

@gsantner was working on another FLOSS app called Froody, which lets you share (naturally growing) food and other things with others. He hopes to enable people to live a more sustainable life. The main idea is to share to and help other people by e.g. sharing pears, which would rot anyway if unused.Everything is built with international use in mind. The app is available at https://github.com/froodyapp/froody-android, and is currently available in #English, #German and #Japanese. Also translatable on Crowdin. He also writes his bachlor thesis about Open Source and Android, which will be completed in summer and likely to be released in an appropiate free license.

@vanitasvitae is writing his bachelor thesis about an #OMEMO module for #Smack, a #XMPP library used by many free messengers like #Jitsi or #Kontalk.
He hopes to enable those messengers to #encrypt your communication end-to-end using the OMEMO protocol introduced by #conversations.
He'll also attend #FOSDEM in #brussels by the way, so if you are there you might meet him and chat a little ;)

Sharing welcome!

mancho / libpurple-omemo-plugin · GitLab



This is a prototype plug-in for Jabber/XMPP accounts to support 1:1 end-to-end encryption with OMEMO (XEP-0384) in Pidgin and other compatible clients using libpurple. It doesn't have graphical trust management yet. See Usage on how to activate and configure it "by hand".

It allows Pidgin to be OMEMO-compatible with Conversations (Android), Gajim (desktop - with OMEMO plug-in) and riba's Pidgin OMEMO plug-in (aka Lurch)1.

DISCLAIMER: This plug-in is a prototype with academic purposes only. It is in experimental state and in constant development. It is not intended to be used on production environments. Do not rely on this plug-in to protect sensitive information. If you use it you are on your own and I take no resposibility for any damage, harm or loss you, your system, your data or your cat might suffer.

Blind Trust Before Verification



Very interesting article on how hard it is to get encryption and trust right. There is no silver bullet it seems, we can only strive hard.
WhatsApp - and pretty soon Signal as well - are the prime example of an industry turning End-to-End Encryption into a hollow marketing phrase that doesn’t mean anything.

#xmpp #omemo #conversations #signal #whatsapp

Blind Trust Before Verification

An introduction to the concept of Blind Trust Before Verification which means to automatically trust all new devices of contacts that haven’t been verified before, and prompt for manual confirmation each time a verified contact adds a new device.
 

End-to-End Encrypted group chats via XMPP



Jamie McClelland writes, that it is still difficult to have a secure group chat. But it's possible.
Use either Conversations for Android (f-droid or Play) or Gajim for Windows or Linux [...]

Ensure that everyone in your group has added everyone else in the group to their roster [...]

Create the group in the android Conversations app, not in Gajim [...]

Profanity 0.5.0 released



According to its GitHub releases page, there seems to be a new version of profanity, a console XMPP client. The changelog lists a lot of new, nice features: - Plugins API supporting C and Python plugins - SSL certificate verification (requires libmesode) (/tls) - HTTP file upload (xep-0363) (/sendfile) - Blocking command (xep-0191) (/blocked) - Allow auto extended away (/autoaway) - Include last acitvity in initial presence (xep-0256) (/lastactivity) - Last Activity (xep-0012) (/lastactivity) - Ability to run command scripts (/script) - Account startscript property to execute a command script on connect (/account) - Export roster to CSV file (/export) - Support for GTK tray icons (/tray) - User specified text triggers for chat room notifications (/notify) - Per chat room notification options (/notify) - Many new roster panel display options (/roster) - Time format preferences per window type (/time) - Edit, prepend and append to room subject (/subject) - Autoping timeout preference (/autoping) - Window navigation by window title (/win) - Window closing by window title (/close) - Account theme setting (/account) - Allow sending XMPP stanzas in xmlconsole window (/xmlconsole) - Configure level of room message notifications in console window (/console) - Check ~/.config/profanity/inputrc for readline settings - Custom readline functions for navigation key bindings - Autocomplete command arguments when no characters entered

I'm not yet a regular profanity user, because I'm happy with Gajim, but sometimes I just prefer the console. Btw., it seems, that OMEMO support is being worked on. Cool!
