Hey has anyone on the fediverse done much research on RCS Universal Profile? Would like to understand it more and it seems hard to get the real lowdown without a ton of marketing bullshit or weird telco lingo I don’t know.
This one Reddit comment helped a lot though https://www.reddit.com/r/UniversalProfile/comments/d0lcxu/are_there_any_open_source_standards_based_server/ezen8h1/
Oh damn ok this is getting somewhere https://www.gstatic.com/messages/papers/messages_e2ee.pdf
They are using the Signal protocol for E2EE
“Unlike other messaging apps where the service provider controls both client and server, RCS is a federated protocol implemented by a variety of client and server vendors. We made sure that E2EE messages will continue to be delivered though other RCS servers without breaking the user experience, but this comes with some challenges and limitations that we will continue working to overcome.”
I am really rather surprised no one is talking about #RCS #UniversalProfile here on the fediverse. It is a mainstream attempt at huge scale federation across the world and they already have an implementation of E2EE (well the google goons do at least)
I assume the whole standard is probably horrid and based on some asinine XML or something but regardless people should be talking about it here since its in our "federated territory" or whatever you want to call it
This document is intended for use asa test specification for RCC.71RCS Universal Profile Service Definition Document v1.0[GSMA RCC.71UP-SDD]. This test specification can be used for end-to-end testing over both User-to-Network Interface (UNI) and Network-to-Network Interface (NNI).
