keysync - convert OTR key info between different formats


keysync [options] [path]


This manual page documents briefly the keysync command.

keysync is a program for converting the various OTR file formats between each other.
KeySync works with the two major OTR keystore versions: libotr format and otr4j, and then
a few variants of those major formats. There is some preliminary support for pure-python-
otr keystores.

It can read and write the OTR keystore formats from Adium, ChatSecure, IRSSI, Jitsi,
Pidgin, and XChat. It can also read some data from Gajim and GnuPG, but that is not yet
fully implemented.

For syncing the OTR data to ChatSecure on an Android device, use keysync-gui.


This is beta software, do not rely on it for strong identity verification. It is unlikely
to mess up so bad as to produce compromised secret keys, but anything is possible. Also,
keep in mind that program is handling your private OTR keys, so careful with the files
produced with keysync! That said, testing and feedback is greatly appreciated, so we can
get it to the point where it can be fully trusted.
