 \subsubsection{SILC}
 
+SILC is instant messaging protocol publicaly released in 2000.  SILC is a per-default secure chat protools thanks to a generalized usage of symetric encryption. Keys are being generated by the server meaning that if compromised, chats could be compromised.
+
+That protocol is not really popular anymore.
