Using Security Labels to Control Message Flow in XMPP Services
XMPP (the Internet Standard eXtensible Messaging and Presence Protocol) is widely used by military and government organizations with stringent security requirements. It is critical to ensure that sensitive information is not sent to inappropriate individuals or domains. Security Labeling is the mechanism of choice for handling sensitive information in high security environments. This paper looks at the use of Security Labels in conjunction with XMPP services, and how Isode plans to enhance its M-Link product to provide Security Label based controls for user to user messaging and for Multi-User Chat (MUC).
