Hello Nick
Thanks for your response. Uploading the image to the XMPP server also counts as uploading it to a third party. The image should be considered private, not accessble to anyone apart from the sender and receiver.
Best regards,Peter Waher

> The thing XEP 363 doesn't mention, but which I think you should take as a given, is that the HTTP server is the XMPP server.  This is how Prosody's mod_http_upload works and there is no other way to configure it.  So there's no trusting a third party any more than any XMPP chat.
