Secure Email (S/MIME)

One of the key means of communication for businesses is still email. However, with cyber threats on the rise, securing sensitive email communications has become imperative. Bluechip offers robust Secure/Multipurpose Internet Mail Extensions (S/MIME) solutions designed to encrypt and digitally sign emails, ensuring the confidentiality, integrity, and authenticity of your messages.

What is S/MIME?

S/MIME is a widely adopted protocol for securing email communications through the use of cryptographic techniques. By digitally signing and encrypting email messages, S/MIME enables users to verify the sender’s identity, prevent message tampering, and protect sensitive information from unauthorized access. S/MIME leverages public-key cryptography to encrypt email content and attachments, providing end-to-end security for both internal and external communications.

Key Features and Benefits of S/MIME Solutions 

  • Encryption S/MIME encrypts email messages and attachments using advanced cryptographic algorithms, preventing unauthorized access to sensitive information transmitted via email.
  • Digital Signatures S/MIME enables users to digitally sign email messages, providing recipients with assurance of the sender’s uniqueness and the goodness of the message content.
  • Data Integrity By digitally signing email messages, S/MIME protects against message tampering and ensures that the content remains unchanged during transit.
  • Compliance S/MIME enables organizations to adhere to industry regulations and data protection laws by securing email communications and protecting sensitive information from unauthorized disclosure.

How S/MIME Works

Each user of S/MIME has a pair of cryptographic keys—a public key and a private key—which work according to the public-key cryptography principle. Email clients that are used by senders encrypt messages and attachments using the public key of the recipient. The message is encrypted and only the intended recipient may view its contents after it has been received. This is accomplished by the recipient’s email software using their private key.

In addition to encryption, S/MIME also enables users to digitally sign their email messages using their private key. The recipient’s email client verifies the digital signature using the sender’s public key, confirming the authenticity of the message and ensuring that it has not been altered in transit.

How do you Protect and Encrypt an Email Message?

Strong solutions for encrypting and safeguarding email messages are provided by Public Key Infrastructure (PKI), represented by digital certificates, and Secure/Multipurpose Internet Mail Extensions (S/MIME). Digital certificates together with S/MIME provide data encryption, message integrity, and non-repudiation of message origin. Services like S/MIME key escrow, certificate lifecycle management, and the reliable DigiCert Certificate Authority (CA) are all included in the Bluechip forum for S/MIME.

What are Ways to Prevent Email Phishing?

Email users can mitigate email phishing risks by implementing a DMARC policy, which efficiently filters out fraudulent or phishing attempts. DMARC surpasses SPF and DKIM policies by verifying the authenticity of sent emails. Furthermore, Verified Mark Certificates, when coupled with DMARC enforcement, safeguard against organization impersonation and ensure that a brand’s genuine logo is displayed in recipients’ inboxes.
