Who of Mastodon app developers wants to add E2EE messages to their app?

Follow

As I've revealed in my last Patreon post, I've been working on adding end-to-end encryption APIs into Mastodon as an upgrade to the direct message system.

Any and all technical details available at the moment are here:

github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/

An implementation guide for app developers is being worked on.

@Gargron I'm choosing to interpret the "message franking" heading in the most literal sense possible

@Gargron

Hi!

Just to be sure, is it the client responsible for key generation, encryption etc?

If so i think using libolm

https://gitlab.matrix.org/matrix-org/olm

could be the simpler way to implement this feature, right?

Bye and thank you for your work!

@Gargron What happened to the plan to add end-to-end encryption to private messages? Thanks

@GerryT Nothing, it will hopefully still happen, it's complicated though
