nobody is going to use this lmao, most people on tech boards don't even know what ssh is

Not here.

So an IM solution based off the ssh2 protocol and it's completely written in asm? This thread has to be the only thing keeping me on any /tech/ nice find.

Why not then nameless ircd? SSH2 has more metadata, even if XMPP w/metadata is safer in OMEMO

urcd is really close to nameless ircd

The only negative I see is that it's written in asm. Not many are going to be able to debug or even review the code for hidden "features."

I could not register. Anyway, ssh being able to disclose stuff like client ciphers and version, terminal options including size, "anonymous" user's PUBLIC KEY or connect username are bad things for anonymous messaging.

Any alternative? We did some research here in the past (see >>10507 ), but we could only find Ricochet (weak cyphers), Briar (still in beta and don't seem have desktop support yet, just mobile) and Jitsi (weak for instant messaging, but uses ZRTP for video). Other clients have good security but bad sides, such as Signal (require phone number) and others.
The more "advanced" solutions (irssi + OMEMO or OTR) is too complicated for normies to set up, so it's not actually usable outside of our imageboard leet culture.
I still think that Briar is good, but laks some vulnerability mitigation that Signal Protocol employ today. A version of Signal that reduces to the maximum the metadata and has a command optional command line interface would be the ideal, but this solution doesn't seem to be done as of today.

those same normies can't use ssh
OP thought this was "cool" not "anonymous" or really even "secure"
>>>/os/ needs a thread for the "masses" to do "anonymous" and "secure" IM encrypted telegram mix net

I was not defending the solution presented on OP. I just want to know if any of you know a IM with the characteristics cited above.
Also, no need to split the community. Keep everything on /tech/.
