ScatterChat is a HACKTIVIST WEAPON designed to allow non-technical
human rights activists and political dissidents to communicate
securely and anonymously while operating in hostile territory. It is
also useful in corporate settings, or in other situations where
privacy is desired.

It is a secure instant messaging client (based upon the Gaim software)
that provides end-to-end encryption, integrated onion-routing with
Tor, secure file transfers, and easy-to-read documentation.

Its security features include resiliency against partial compromise
through perfect forward secrecy, immunity from replay attacks, and
limited resistance to traffic analysis... all reinforced through a
pro-actively secure design.
