2008 (English)In: SECRYPT 2008: Proceedings Of The International Conference On Security And Cryptography / [ed] FernandezMedina, E; Malek, M; Hernando, J, 2008, 84-91 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
The paper describes new, innovative and highly secure E-mail system. The system, first, provides both standard security services for E-mail letters: signed and encrypted E-mail. In addition, address book is encrypted, thus E-mail addresses can not be stolen for spamming. Each E-mail server is protected using SAML authorization policy, so E-mails are received only from authorized senders. Finally, all E-mail addresses arc validated and certified by specially designed Secure E-mail Infrastructure (SEI) Authorities, organized in a federated hierarchy. Thus CryptoNet Secure E-mail system completely eliminates spam, distribution of viruses, worms, and malware, and eliminates the possibility to use fake E-mail addresses.
