Security of Instant Messengers

Juraj Sasko (Školiteľ: Kuo-Ming Chao, PhD) | pridané: 4. mája 2009

Abstrakt bakalárskej práce:

This bachelor thesis is about security of instant messengers, it describes the best techniques for securing our virtual communication.

The purpose of this project is to show instant messaging users all main

vulnerabilities of instant messaging and help them to protect their instant

communication against potential eavesdroppers.

This project gives just a short overview on the most used instant messaging

clients with brief description of their protocols. The pattern of the main part of this

project involves introduction to the certain instant messaging vulnerabilities and

security issues with demonstration how easy is to eavesdrop the conversation

between two clients as far as all necessary security actions are not ensured.

Consequently the following chapters determine all possibilities to ensure the

secure instant messaging communication. One way is to use a personal firewall

and hence certain part of this project implies the firewall usage with the aim to

secure instant messaging.

Ordinary IM user is not very familiar with VPN tunnels and similar hardware

firewalls therefore this solution is just outlined.

Certainly very useful and the most accessible way for the home users are

software applications, plugins and utilities for IM clients. Several IM clients are

based on plugins, whereby they offer to the user flexible and changeable

interface. The most famous multi messenger is Miranda IM with wide range of

plugins also for security and privacy. The aim of this part is to develop a new

plugin and to show, how security plugin works, what are his vulnerabilities, gain

some improvements and updates towards to better security such as password

encryption and its secure removing in comparison with other plugins. Finally I

would like to prove and demonstrate why this new plugin is good and secure.
