Sometimes you might run clients without encryption on the same machine or LAN as Prosody - and you want Prosody to treat them as secure (e.g. allowing plaintext authentication) even though they are not encrypted.

This module allows you to tell Prosody which of the current server’s interfaces (IP addresses) that you consider to be on secure networks.


Configuration is simple, just load the module like any other by adding it to your modules_enabled list:

    modules_enabled = {

Then set the list of secure interfaces (just make sure it is set in the global section of your config file, and not under a VirtualHost or Component):

    secure_interfaces = { "", "::1", "" }


0.9 Works
0.8 Unknown
trunk Works


With the plugin installer in Prosody 0.12 you can use:

sudo prosodyctl install --server= mod_secure_interfaces
