Somehow I can se a big advantage of using the
jabber:iq:private data storage.
I Programming Jabber, there is a generel example of storing bookmarks in
on the jabber account. It anyone familiar with application that actually
The first applications that could tage this advantage could be
jabber-clients, like storing account-specific-though private
informations in jabber:iq:private instead of a file on the users
harddrive. E.g. Private Encryption key ( or only keyid if the server is
not considered secure enough )
Webbrowsers could aggre on storing bookmarks and other settings.
Moreover in lots of applications this could help anyone "taking" it
personal information with them onto a new/public/other computer.
(Of-course sensitive data should be handled with care ).
Webshop applications could allready prefill address/name to an order
when a jabber-id is entered..
So what's you view on using these facilities for datastorage and are you
familliar with any application that does it now.
