AOL, in partnership with VeriSign, is slated to release a corporate version of its AIM later this year that encrypts the messages. But, experts said encrypting the traffic would prevent network administrators from distinguishing between safe messages and dangerous ones.



A version of Akonix L7 that secures IM programs will be released to the public in late June, followed by one for peer-to-peer programs in late summer, the company said.

Does this mean that i-chat will have some sort of encryption seeing as though it involves AOL?
