The goal of the IETF's Instant Messaging and Presence Protocol (IMPP) Working Group is to define a standard protocol so that independently developed applications of instant messaging and/or presence can interoperate across the Internet. This working group will eventually define the protocols and data formats necessary to build a cohesive internet-scale messaging system capable of: end-user presence awareness/notification, instant messaging, user authentication, message integrity, encryption and access control.
