Beyond Jabbering: Federated XMPP
Time 10/06/09 08:45AM-10:00AM
Real time remote collaboration highlights challenges with interoperability, identity management, federations, and secure campus to campus communication. This session will discuss the fundamentals of XMPP/Jabber, a widely used open protocol that provides the foundation for services such as Google Talk. We will cover organizations currently using XMPP, the benefits of their deployments, and the PIC-wg PIC@edu project. Following the PIC@edu cookbook, we will demonstrate the ease with which a simple Jabber server can be deployed for IM at any institution. Using the PIC@edu's loose server-to-server federation, institutions can leverage each others' identity management systems to provide secure, reliable end-to-end real-time communications.
