Chapter 8. E-mail Security > E-mail Solutions

E-mail Solutions

This section gives you some freely available solutions for regaining privacy in your communications. First, we discuss PGP and walk you through sending a signed and encrypted e-mail message. Then we discuss some Web-based e-mail solutions such as Yahoo! Mail, HushMail, and LokMail. Of these, both HushMail and LokMail are based on the OpenPGP standards.

Imagine for a minute that Alice is a biologist. She has been working with her colleague Bob on a new vaccination for a rare disease. They want to keep their communications private until their testing is finished. Otherwise, the media or someone else might exploit their work and misrepresent it. After Alice and Bob have each installed PGP software and generated their own private/public key pairs, they are in business and are almost ready to exchange secure e-mail.
