Yeah its encrypted, Public AND Private keys are stored on Skype's server.
Although this is great, and provides the user with an encrypted
conversation (voice or text) wherever he/she is in the world - it means
all the keys are stored in 1 location and can be intercepted by either
Skype or the feds heh...
/end-to-end deniable encryption for Skype chat messages.
/There is no denying that an OTR Conversation has been encrypted.. Its
because the private keys change ultra-frequently, and the keys are short
lived that it provides the 'plausible deniability'
Even with OTR, theres no need to send your private conversations through
skype's servers. You should use OTR with a trusted jabber server.
