 Off-the-Record (OTR) Messaging allows you to have private conversations
 over instant messaging by providing:

 == Encryption ==
     No one else can read your instant messages.
 == Authentication ==
     You are assured the correspondent is who you think it is.
 == Deniability ==
     The messages you send do not have digital signatures that are
 checkable by a third party. Anyone can forge messages after a conversation
 to make them look like they came from you. However, during a conversation,
 your correspondent is assured the messages he sees are authentic and
 == Perfect forward secrecy ==
     If you lose control of your private keys, no previous conversation is
 ''Please note that you can use HTML in description.''
