    About: SILC (Secure Internet Live Conferencing) is a protocol which
    provides secure conferencing services in the Internet over insecure
    channels. SILC superficially resembles IRC, although they are very
    different internally. The purpose of SILC is to provide secure conferencing
    services. Strong cryptographic methods are used to secure all traffic. The
    SILC is delivered as SILC Client for end users, SILC Server for system
    administrators, and SILC Toolkit for application developers.
    Changes: Backup router support and backup router resuming support, file
    transfer support and implementation of the SFTP protoocol, and a memory
    (virtual) filesystem for file sharing added. Security fixes for MAC
    computation, MAC keys, and packet length encryption were made. Other minor
    bugfixes were also made.
