The Matrix homeserver Conduit just got support for cross-signing

Matrix is a secure, private, decentralized, open source messaging platform (

Conduit ( implements the Matrix specification in Rust, which makes it very lightweight and performant.

Cross-signing is mostly happens client-side, but I thought it might still be worth sharing.


This is pretty cool. I wish more Rust people were interested in Matrix.

I wish Ruma would have been ready before the Go server implementation so the Matrix people would have seen Rust shine.

It's nice that Conduit's development goes pretty fast.
