  • anonymous
    • hides who communicates with whom
    • hides physical location
  • registration free

A candidate what this will be based on is the Tor network using hidden-services. There is an existing (undocumented) protocol called TorChat which could be used to do this and would also work with other implementations. For more details see https://www.meebey.net/research/torchat_protocol/
