AOL Instant Messenger Proxy

Hi All,

I am looking to write a small proxy for AOL Instant Messenger to in-line encrypt/decrypt messages to and from certain users. It should automatically pass through everything except the message content of the selected messages, where it will take the original message content and then encrypt/decrypt the text as appropriate.

My question is does anyone either already have a script to do this, know of some libraries which might help me do this, or a good book/website to help me with this?

Thanks in advance!!!

there are plenty of encryption and decryption libraries ... Google for open ssl, libcrypto ... Links to them and others can be found here

You will need the proxy to be installed at both communicating ends and some mechanism to distinguish an encrypted message from an unencrypted one.

If you're looking to not write your own program and instead use a built-in encryption/decryption plugin for an existing AIM client, use gaim (http://gaim.sourceforge.net)  along with the gaim-encryption plugin (http://gaim-encryption.sourceforge.net/).

Thanks - far easier than writing my own!
