Video: Emil Ivov about Jitsi, a VoIP softphone supporting IPv6 and DNSSEC

By Dan York Senior Manager, Content and Web Strategy

jitsi.jpgThe Jitsi audio/video softphone and messaging client supports both IPv6 and DNSSEC.  How did it get started with IPv6 support?  Why did it add DNSSEC? What value does DNSSEC add to VoIP and IP communications?   We first wrote about Jitsi’s DNSSEC support almost a year ago, but earlier this month at IETF86 I had a chance to sit down with Jitsi project lead Emil Ivov and ask him these questions and much more:

Jitsi is available for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux from:  http://jitsi.org/  It used to be called the “SIP Communicator” but when they added support for XMPP (Jabber) and XMPP/Jingle back in 2011 they changed the name to be Jitsi.

Given my own personal interest in VoIP / IP communications, I’m planning to write a bit more about Jitsi as I get a chance to do so.  If any of you use Jitsi and create any screencasts about its IPv6 or DNSSEC support – or write up any articles about those capabilities – please do let us know as I’d like to include more on our site about this great project.
