1 Off-the-Record Messaging: An Introduction English Link in English Russell O'Connor OTR is a plug in for instant messengers that adds encryption and authentication to your IM conversations. But unlike other crypto plug-ins, OTR provides plausible deniability and perfect forward secrecy.

Perfect forward secrecy means that the encryption cannot be compromised even if you later lose control of your keys. This short talk will introduce OTR and why you want to use it.

6 Anomalous behaviour of an IRC eggdrop bot - the example of Susilein English Link in English ramses After installing the eggdrop bot 'Susilein' on the IRCNet channel #saphis-ecke we decided to provide a 'brain' script for this bot. This script logs everything that is said on the channel and chooses an expression from its database randomly from time to time to post it into the channel. After some time we observed some 'intelligent' behaviour of Susilein. The random sentences the bot chooses often refer to things human users say on the channel. Now the bot seems to be able to 'communicate' with human chatters in an intelligent way. In this lightning talk I want to discuss this phenomenon, give some examples of Susilein's 'intelligent' behaviour and discuss possible explanations for the phenomenon.
