The approach I might take with REBOL would be to develop a very light-weight server side script - responsible for listening for chat users. In essence all it would do is record that they are on-line, what their IP address is, and get a public key from them. You could also have it do a basic password challenge. Then when a user starts a chat client - it would contact the server process to indicate that they are on-line, and what their IP address is, along with a public key. It would also request the list of other users who are online. Then, when you select a user from the chat client - it could attempt to contact them directly - but clients would exchange public keys, and generate a session key. Then all communication can occur between the two clients, securely. - Porter
