Supports both cbc and ecb encryption modes. (to use cbc encryption just prefix the key with cbc: )

Blowssi will work on any platform perl and irssi work on.
dh1080 key exchange (since 0.2.0)
Crypt::ircBlowfish (see bundeled zip file, but also available from donationcoder.com)
Crypt::ircDH1080 (see bundled tar.gz file)
Crypt::CBC (on gentoo you can just: emerge dev-perl/crypt-cbc)
MIME:Base64 (on gentoo you can just: emerge perl-MIME-Base64 (which is a virtual package)
or emerge perl-core/MIME-Base64 though you probably already have it.)
irssi (... duh!)
First make sure all requirements are installed (see above).
To install, just put the script in ~/.irssi/scripts and put this in your
/blowon : Turns encryption back on after you used /blowoff (it's on by default)
note that blowssi will not attempt to encrypt/decrypt in channels without key anyway.
This is just for convenience in case you don't want to use the backtick (`) method. (see notes)
/blowoff : Causes encryption and decryption to be skipped for all channels, even with key.
/blowkey channel key : sets a key for a channel or nickname (for pm queries)
eg: /blowkey #mircryption test
/blowkey Gothi[c] foo
Note that you must use the # character for channels.
/blowdel channel : Removes a key for a channel or nickname (query), effectively disabeling encryption.
/blowkeyx cbc|ecb user : Starts a key exchange with specified user, using specified mode (ecb or cbc).
If you start a line with a backtick (`), encryption will be bypassed.
Prefix a key with cbc: to use CBC mode instead of ECB.
Use # for channels, or nicknames to set keys for query windows.
Configuration file is stored in ~/.irssi/blowssi.conf
