Off-the-Record (OTR) Messaging is a cryptographic protocol used in
well-known instant messaging clients such as Pidgin, ChatSecure, Adium
and others. It is designed to work on top of existing protocols and
used worldwide to provide secure communication in insecure
environments. OTR is regarded as highly secure and according to
documents revealed by Edward Snowden one of the protocols that the NSA
is not able to decrypt via cryptanalysis. The most commonly used
implementation of OTR is "libotr" which is a pure C code implementation
of the OTR protocol.
