Encrypting Skype

Skype supposedly encrypts all communication between peers. Thing is, even if it’s encrypted, Skype still holds all the keys, so they could technically read anything that’s going through their system.

I found a plugin that lets you use Skype through Adium. Adium has Off The Record, which can then be used to encrypt Skype messages.

Here is a sample image of what the message looks like when intercepted by growl:
