I'm looking for implementations (or even wrappers) for OTR or SecureIM encrypted chat protocols usable from C#.

Currently I found none, and considering porting Java OTR library and/or wrapping SecureIM. But maybe I missed something?

    SecureIM is written in C++ and callable from C#... what is the problem?

  • Unfortunately, Windows Phone 8 apps, at least from "mere mortals" (Skype, Adobe Reader etc are exception from this rule) can't have unmanaged assemblies, as that would violate the sandbox model

  • If you can't have unmanaged libraries, then why are you asking for wrappers? Apr 8, 2013 at 9:51
  • To be able to prototype UI and so on whilst porting crypto to managed code

  • I expect you already checked the OTR library and toolkit on CyberPunks? It includes both C++ and Java source code, has ample documentation with well defined protocol and crypto, user authentication (PDF), and the source code is installable from a git repository?
