I can't point you towards any white papers unfortunately, however I
CAN point you towards an application that I have found most useful for
securing IM conversations.


The free version is for personal use and trial. Their pro version
(only around $22 USD) will encrypt just about ANY mainstream IM you
may use. Definately worth a look (for anyone) if you haven't seen it
yet. Very easy to use and setup, which I find a necessity when trying
to communicate with clients using it. (I can include the free version
in an email or on a CD to them and give them instructions to install

Peace. ~G

I am looking for white papers on enterprise Instant Messenger security
concerns.  It doesn't have to be, but anything on MSN IM would be
helpful too.  Does anyone have any good resources to share?
