SILC Client

http://silcnet.org/
SILC (Secure Internet Live Conferencing) is a protocol which provides secure Internet conferencing services over insecure channels. It superficially resembles IRC, although they are very different internally. The purpose of SILC is to provide secure conferencing services. Strong cryptographic methods are used to secure all traffic, and all messages are encrypted and authenticated. The SILC also supports secure file transferring. There is the SILC Client for end users, the SILC Server for system administrators, and the SILC Toolkit for application developers.
