    8 Mumble is an open source low-latency VoIP (Voice over IP) chat software primarily intended for use while gaming. It is distributed under the New BSD License. Users can use Mumble to connect to the public server called Mumble Server or Murmur or set up their own server to connect to, and then communicate with multiple parties at once by voice-over chat. Mumble connects to a server via a TLS control channel with the audio traveling via UDP, end-to-end encrypted with AES in OCB mode to ensure user privacy. OCB is used to provide both secrecy and authentication while maintaining low latency.

Users can use Mumble to connect to the public server or set up their own server to connect to with Murmur, allowing one to communicate with multiple parties at once by voice-over chat. Mumble connects to a server via a TLS/TCP control channel. While it normally uses a UDP audio channel, using Mumble over Tor forces traffic entirely over the control channel, and uses the ciphers that it supports. This is due to Tors inability to handle UDP packets.
