Requiring Encryption on XMPP Services
Thursday morning at 6:30 AM EDT we will be upgrading our Prosody (XMPP) server to require encryption for all server-to-server connections. This means that users of the dukgo.com XMPP service will only be able to chat with contacts on servers which support encryption. Unfortunately, we will no longer be able to support connections to unencrypted services (Google Talk is the most popular of these). We feel that this is a necessary trade-off in order to provide a secure communication platform for our users.
There will be an XMPP broadcast message sent to all users prior to the upgrade. We expect the service to be available again within 30 minutes. The Community Platform will also be unavailable during this maintenance window.
