Messaging Layer Security

Several widely-deployed applications have developed their own protocols to secure instant messaging. While these protocols are in some cases similar, no two are close enough to interoperate. As a result, each application vendor has had to maintain their own protocol stack and independently build trust in the quality of the protocol. The objective of this mailing list is to work towards a WG to to develop a standard security protocol so that applications can share code, and so that there can be shared validation of the protocol.
