Encrypt Instant Messenger (IM) Chat With IM Crypto
IM Crypto, free instant messenger chat encryption software that encrypt IM chat conversation with public and private encryption key. Once the IM conversation is encrypted with encryption key, no one but the receiver at the other end of the channel who has the private key can decrypt your messages. If anyone else who tries to record your chat messages will only get a heap of garbled characters. Plus more, it takes time to decrypt the encrypted chat message into readable chat conversation.
However, this instant message chat encryption can be function only unless both ends of the channel are installed with IM Crypto.
How does IM Crypto work?
Having installed the program you need to generate or import a keypair (public and private keys) that will be used for message encryption and decryption. This operation is performed on the second stage of IMCrypto Configuration Wizard.
When you launch an instant messenger and start conversation with one of your contacts by clicking “Quick Start” button, IMCrypto sends the following text message to your interlocutor: “This contact wants to establish secure conversation with you. Accept?” After your interlocutor clicks “Yes” an automatic exchange of public keys occurs. The contact’s information and his public key are stored into IMCrypto database (can be accessed via IMCrypto Control Center) so that in future this procedure of public keys exchange is not required.
Beside that, there is some disadvantage of IM Crypto is the limited support for IM clients such ICQ and Yahoo messenger only and platform-wise only Windows 2000/XP/Vista. Plus more, the IM Crypto free version allows you to create a secured channel with only one of your contacts only
So, IM crypto is definitely one of free chat encryption software that able to secure your chat conversation nicely.
