you could encrypt the file, the connection or both.
But there is no standardized protocol for encrypted file transfers yet, and there is no support in the MiniClient.

Thanks

Is the chat message in MiniClient encrypted also ?

If not, how can I get the public key and private key used in the ssl login
for encryption ?

Thanks

Normally all XMPP Sessions are encrypted with TLS. So your messages are encrypted with the TLS transport layer.
TLS is no end to end encryption, which means the server admin would be able to read the messages if he wants to.

Thanks for your reply
But after checking the source code in AgsXmpp, I cannot find any code on TLS encryption in the transport
layer, except there are SSL encrpytion for the login, so there are no encryption available by ags in messaging ?

Look in ClientSocket.cs, there is the TLS and SSL stuff.
If the server supports StartTLS then the connection gets automatically secured.
