Encryption and security

Self signed certificates are not accepted for practical reasons, because the server must be able to determine the validity of foreign certificates immediately (!) and independently (!). The CaCert root certificate was imported especially for the jabber.ccc.de server. Exceptions for self-signed certificates are not made.

Access via TOR Hidden Service

For all TOR fans I offer a hidden service that allows client-to-server connections to the XMPP server. The address is: m4c722bvc2r7brnn.onion.

Note: It is not possible (and also not necessary) to offer a valid TLS certificate for the.onion address. Since access via.onion is already sufficiently secured, a check of the offered TLS certificate can be omitted. However, this does not apply to access via TOR and trashserver.net address (without.onion link)!

Note: The http_upload module also works with the normal DNS and classic connections to the Internet when using the.onion address. A “normal” Internet connection must therefore be possible in parallel for its function.
