What encryption/decryption method is being used with Openfire?

Hi there,

I am configuring oepnfire for our company…

I am just wondering what encryption/decryption method is being used with Openfire for the messages sent among users?

Is a FIPS approved standard utilised or is it AES-256, 3DES?

How do we ensure only desired users receive the messages, decrypt and see them?

Thank you in advance.

Normally there is only TLS encryption between Client and Server. When you need end-to-end encryption try a client that does support this, this is indepented from the server. Commonly used are OpenPGP or OTR encryption. Clients supporting these are Pidgin, Psi, Kopete and Gajim for example.
