Jami is a free/libre, end-to-end encrypted and private communication platform that requires no central authority.
Jami’s features include: text chats, voice and video calls, screen sharing, file sharing, conference calls, and group chats. Jami can also function as a regular SIP client.
Jami works on GNU/Linux, Windows, macOS, iOS, and Android. Multiple devices can be linked to a Jami account, and no personal information is required to create an account.
How does Jami work?
Jami uses a distributed hash table (DHT) to connect peers. Jami accounts are asymmetric X.509 certificates generated by the GnuTLS library. Calls are made over the Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) after negotiating a TLS-encrypted secure connection, performing Secure Real-time Transport Protocol (SRTP) communication which carries the media streams.
Who makes Jami?
The Jami project is led by Savoir-faire Linux – a Canadian/Québécois GNU/Linux consulting company – and is supported by a global community of free software enthusiasts, users, and contributors.
