SILC stands for Secure Internet Live Conferencing. SILC's purpose in life is to provide a secure chat environment. The raw protocol is an absolute bear to work with and the C toolkit isn't much better. With that said many have found their way off of IRC and onto SILC.
If you would like to communicate with people on SILC then Far East Trader might be the tool you've been looking for. Combined with tools like stunnel or inetd Far East Trader can act as a bouncer allowing IRC clients to connect to SILC servers.
