SILC (Secure Internet Live Conferencing) is a protocol which provides secure conferencing services in the Internet over insecure channels. SILC superficially resembles IRC, although they are very different internally. The purpose of SILC is to provide secure conferencing services. SILC uses strong cryptographic methods to secure all traffic; it encrypts and authenticates all messages. It also supports secure file transferring. The SILC is delivered as SILC Client for end users, SILC Server for system administrators, and SILC Toolkit for application developers.
