E-Mail Security

There is an interesting article in Information Week (click here to read) which describes improvements in public key technology known as IBE which is described in detail. The article also talks to other existing solutions (and recent improvements in them) such as PGP and others. But, above all, the article notes that this technology area continues to be one which has many emerging and competing solutions with no clear standard yet in place.

This may be of interest to those law firm CIO's, Directors or mail administrators charged with putting together highly secure email transmission methods.
