hexchat plugin to support Off The Record (OTR)


A plugin for the IRC client hexchat to support Off The Record (OTR) conversations.

OTR allows you to have private conversations over IM by providing:
 - Encryption
  - No one else can read your instant messages.
 - Authentication
  - You are assured the correspondent is who you think it is.
 - Deniability
  - The messages you send do _not_ have digital signatures that are
    checkable by a third party. Anyone can forge messages after a
    conversation to make them look like they came from you. However,
    _during_ a conversation, your correspondent is assured the messages
    they see are authentic and unmodified.
 - Perfect forward secrecy
  - If you lose control of your private keys, no previous conversation
    is compromised.
