The SCC operates an instant messaging service based on XMPP (formerly Jabber) for KIT. The service is aimed at KIT members, students and partners. Although the service is designed as an internal communication platform, it can be used by clients outside the KIT network without VPN.
KIT accounts in the KIT OpenLDAP directory service are used for authentication.
Users are identified by the so-called Jabber ID (JID). For employees, this is the mail address of the form firstname.lastname[at]kit.edu, for example beate.beispiel[at]kit.edu. Guests and partners must use sAMAccountName[at]partner.kit.edu (sAMAccountName here usually consists of two letters and four numbers) for technical reasons. For students, the JID has the form uxxxx [at]student.kit.edu. The password is the password of the associated KIT or GuP account.
