This app is built from multiple components:
- The core chat client is based on the Google’s Talk IM App, modified to support XMPP directly by the Gitian Project
- Circumvention and Anti-Surveillance features are via Orbot: Tor on Android.
- The end-to-end encryption is enabled using the Off-the-Record OTR4J library.
Development is actively underway. You can join our Guardian-Dev mailing list to get more information on how to contribute as a developer or tester.
