Tuesday Afternoon Club / Session 5: Algorithms behind Email encryption
Speaker: Rolf Kremer, PhD
Moderator: Assoc. Prof. Petar Armyanov , PhD
Resume: Encryption of emails is a standard in today’s communication to protect the content of an email from being read by unwanted parties.
A possible approach is to use public key infrastructure-based encryption methods, like S/MIME or OpenPGP. In this session the standard S/MIME (Secure / Multipurpose Internet Mail Extensions) will be discussed, including the new version 4.0. The other standard OpenPGP (Open Pretty Good Privacy) will be discussed and both standards will be compared.
