GoldBug 0.6.2088 – An Instant Messenger Worth Checking Out

O. James Samson - October 30, 2013

One of the many features a good Instant Messenger should have is the ability to enable you send messages or chat securely. No one wants an application or IM that exposes him to a third-party interference; and that is why it is important to read reviews or hear from others before installing one. It does look like a program or Instant Messenger like GoldBug has that kind of feature and more.

What’s GoldBug?

GoldBug is a secure Instant Messenger. You can be sure with using GoldBug (GB), that no third party can look into your chat communication. Private user-to-user communication remains private. GoldBug (short: GB or GBIM) therefore uses multi-encryption with different layers of modern encryption Technologies (libgcrypt). It offers as well decentral and encrypted Email and decentral public E*IRC-Chat.

With GoldBug, you can enjoy the following features: create a group chat to all your friends just by selecting all; GoldBug uses public/private RSA keys. The public key must be exchanged between friends; GoldBug offers you serverless p2p Email without data retention; GoldBug encrypts your private chat to a friend with RSA-Keys, SSL and end-to-end encryption; Public Chat is provided with e*IRC, which is echo-ed IRC: Groupchat on AES Channels; MELODICA Button provides instant forward secrecy; and many more.

Any downside?

Great free program, with handy features that doesn’t seem to have any downsides.
