Due to the rapid increase in the use of Instant Messaging (IM) among people, there exists a severe threat from attackers, who can sniff the data and also implant worms since the communication between two users of many IM systems are not secure. This increases the need for a secure, lightweight cryptographic system to enhance the security of the existing IM system. In this paper, the authors are using a new algorithm based on Identity Based Cryptosystems (IBC) which is an emerging concept in cryptography and an extension to public key cryptosystems.
