This section details what data OTR.im can see and can not see on this Jabber server.
First of all, this server is setup with full disk encryption (FDE) so all that we store is only on an encrypted disk. We use a LUKS device for this. Secondly, logging is completely disabled on the Jabber server, even error logs.
In case of a seizure, if the server is powered off, the FDE will protect all data. If the server is kept online, see the What we can see? section below.
SHA1hash of the password are stored on the server.
