How Users Manage Cryptographic Digital IDs in Outlook

Microsoft Office Outlook 2003 provides ways for users to manage their digital IDs—the combination of a user’s certificate and public and private encryption key set. Digital IDs help to keep users’ e-mail messages secure by letting them exchange cryptographic messages. Managing digital IDs can include:

  • Making a digital ID available to others.

  • Exporting a digital ID to a file. This is useful when creating a backup or when migrating to a new computer.

  • Importing a digital ID from a file into Outlook. A digital ID file might be a user’s backup copy or might contain a digital ID from another user.

  • Renewing a digital ID. This happens automatically when a digital ID is issued by a certificate authority (CA), unless the certificate has expired.
