The communication or 'Comms' server is based on one of the new features of Maltego - the ability to share graphs and have multiple users work on a graph at the same time. This shared graph session is run on a Jabber server hosted on Paterva's infrastructure. This Youtube video demonstrates how shared graphs are used in Maltego
If you don't want the traffic from the shared graph sessions to run over the Internet on Paterva's infrastructure you can buy a private comms server so that this traffic will all be kept local.
Please note that even if a private Comms server is not used all traffic from the shared graph session that runs on Paterva's infrastructure is encrypted.
