+conversations over instant messaging by providing: (1) Encryption: No one else
+can read your instant messages.  (2) Authentication: You are assured the
+correspondent is who you think it is.  (3) Deniability: The messages you send
+do not have digital signatures that are checkable by a third party.  Anyone
+can forge messages after a conversation to make them look like they came from
+you.  However, during a conversation, your correspondent is assured the
+messages he sees are authentic and unmodified.  (4) Perfect forward secrecy:
