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.

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
