This section describes how to configure Jabber with Cisco Unified MeetingPlace on a Jabber XCP server so that users can initiate Cisco Unified MeetingPlace meetings from a Jabber Messenger client. You have the option to configure Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) to implement security between the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Web Server and the Jabber XCP server. Use SSL to provide secure transmission of data across the network through the use of public or private key encryption.
