I'm guessing you are talking about the software from Open Whisper Systems (and WhatsApp)? There is a python port of axolotl, the encryption system behind Signal/TextSecure (and WhatsApp). I don't know of any code to fully support Signal/TextSecure on Linux but there is yowsup for folks who want to interface with the WhatsApp network, it now supports the axolotl encryption. I expect it wouldn't take much to get that working on the FR, especially since there are already Debian packages of both of those. You would need a UI though, yowsup is command-line. https://github.com/tgalal/python-axolotl https://github.com/tgalal/yowsup -- bye, pabs http://wiki.openmoko.org/wiki/User:PaulWise _______________________________________________ Openmoko community mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org http://lists.openmoko.org/mailman/listinfo/community
