This project entitled as "Encrypted Chat Messenger" is used basically for chatting purpose with the remote client or user on a network. The word Encryption at the beginning denotes that the project uses techniques of encryption to overcome some security issues. The users or the clients are given user name and password, the user name is simply stored in a file and the password is encrypted and then stored. The encryption algorithm used for encrypting the password is hash algorithm. We have implemented End to End Encryption in our project. This is a special type of encryption in which when a client sends a message to another client, the message is automatically encrypted without the knowledge of the client then passes through the network and reaches the other client in encrypted form. At the other client side the message is decrypted automatically.

Abstract


This project entitled as "Encrypted Chat Messenger" is used basically for chatting purpose with the remote client or user on a network. The word Encryption at the beginning denotes that the project uses techniques of encryption to overcome some security issues. The users or the clients are given user name and password, the user name is simply stored in a file and the password is encrypted and then stored. The encryption algorithm used for encrypting the password is hash algorithm. We have implemented End to End Encryption in our project. This is a special type of encryption in which when a client sends a message to another client, the message is automatically encrypted without the knowledge of the client then passes through the network and reaches the other client in encrypted form. At the other client side the message is decrypted automatically.
