Tigase XMPP Server - grade A software

We always strive to provide you with the best possible experience while using Tigase therefore we improved Tigase to be on pair with the latest notion of ubiquitous encryption on the XMPP network. This results in the grade A on XMPP Observatory for services that run Tigase and follow configuration guidelines outlined below.

In principle obtaining grade A for a service running Tigase entails:

  • using a correct version of Tigase - 5.2.0 rc2 or later;
  • having a correct certificate - whole guide devoted to the subject, including  obtaining it and configuring Tigase can be found in Creating and loading the server certificate in pem files;
  • enabling a hardened mode - a special mode which configure a few security aspects of Tigase, including disabling of SSLv3 among other things, details can be found in --hardened-mode.

Above will result in grade A on XMPP Observatory, as you can see for our services:
