lime-0.0.1 - October 22nd 2017
* Initial release
Lime is a thread safe C++ library implementing Open Whisper System Signal protocol :
Sesame, double ratchet and X3DH.
LIME is an end-to-end encryption library for one-to-one and group instant messaging, allowing users to exchange messages privately and asynchronously. It uses modern ciphering curve X448 and double ratchet algorithm for perfect forward secrecy.
Lime can run the Signal Protocol using elliptic curve 25519 or curve 448-goldilocks.
LIME is composed of a portable client library coupled with a public key server developed by Belledonne Communications to allow end-to-end encryption for messaging, without having to exchange cryptographic keys simultaneously.
It is designed to work jointly with *Linphone*[1] in a multiple devices per user and multiple users per device environment.
The library exposes a C, C++, Python and Java API for easy integration in mobile and desktop environments.
LIME supports multiple devices per user and multiple users per device.
