I was reading the XMPP newsletter for April 2021, and saw an interesting summary:
Isode presents their military capabilities at DSEI 2021, offering Military Instant Messaging and more.
And hey, they are sell XMPP products to the military!
So that’s wild. But also kinda reassuring, for a protocol. They have an interest in keeping the protocol secure and sustainable. If only every XMPP project were able to dip into the Pentagon’s budget!
