While "Tim"'s advice may be sound and all, I don't know what other solutions are there. Is Ekiga safer for illegal or confidential purposes than Skype? Looking at it from the other point of view, that of law enforcement, is it feasible to get a warrant to eavesdrop on a private communication using Skype, or Ekiga? Even if the police have access to Skype communications, I don't think they want the bad guys (or the rest of us) to know.
Not that I am thinking about terrorists or drug dealers. If I were to run an illegal network I would just use SSH to a central server using private keys kept in USB dongles, plus passwords, and read and write text documents there. Or maybe even a VPN. Much simpler and easier to manage. That shows you that geeks make awful terrorists or drug dealers!
