Free plug-in encrypts content, authenticates users

Kryptiva aims to ease e-mail encryption

Kryptiva this week announced an encryption product designed to secure e-mail communications from the sender's desktop to the recipient's in-box.

Called Email Encryption Architecture and available as a free download from Kryptiva's site, the software works with any e-mail system to authenticate users and encrypt content, according to company officials. With this free download, Kryptiva hopes to change the minds of enterprises whose executives believe that e-mail encryption is too expensive and difficult to deploy.

The Email Encryption Architecture, based on RSA 1024 and AES 128 encryption technology, incorporates into client e-mail interfaces and doesn't require recipients to publish keys or certificates ahead of time, officials say.

The new product includes Kryptiva Packaging Plugin that resides with client e-mail systems, and the Kryptiva Packaging Server that is installed on a network server and integrates with an organization's directory services to package an e-mail before it is sent for authentication, encryption and proof of delivery, officials say. The server then returns the packaged e-mail to the client plug-in and is sent into the outbound mail stream.

On the receiving end, the plug-in confirms with the local server that the recipient attempting to open the e-mail is the intended one. The Kryptiva Online Services help the plug-in authenticate inbound e-mail and process proof of delivery.

The Email Encryption Architecture plug-in is available for free download, as is the server software once a company completes the activation process, which includes obtaining an SSL certificate for Kryptiva to validate the company's identity and location.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
