About this site

A free XMPP service is provided at honigdachse.de, it's also available as an onion service. The in-band registration is currently deactivated due to spam. But you may direct your browser over here to create a new user account at honigdachse.de. After creation you can use a regular xmpp client, like Gajim or Conversations, with your credentials to connect to the XMPP network. The software will be kept up to date and all modern recommendations for the installation will be considered, so the service will work like you'd expect it from a modern messaging solution.

The service is supplied by ejabberd. The amount of logging and saving of user information is kept at a minimum, only error messages or warnings will show up in the logs. There won't be any traces of which client connected to which server in the logs. This also means that regular logins or the sending of messages will never be logged. On top of that, hide_sensitive_log_data: true is set, so ejabberd will never write IP addresses or other sensitive data into the log file.

The onion service is running on port 5222: otm5car7fa4u3m3u.onion

Help, I lost my password! Can you send me a new one?

Short answer: I can't help you, please use a password manager like KeePass next time.

Your password is being saved in the database with the help of a cryptographic hash function, it is not saved in cleartext and therefore even I can't extract it from the database. A safe method for resetting a password is not exactly easy to implement because you would always need to rely on a second factor (SMS, OTP, smartcard, ...) to make sure you are the legimitate person. This would need special infrastructure which I'm currently not able and/or willing to provide.
