What is Email Encryption?
Email encryption involves encrypting, or disguising, the content of email messages in order to protect potentially sensitive information from being read by anyone other than intended recipients. Email encryption often includes authentication. Email is prone to disclosure of information. Most emails are currently transmitted in the clear (not encrypted) form. By means of some available tools, persons other than the designated recipients can read the email contents. Meaning, it is not entirely secure. Sending information in an unencrypted email is the equivalent of writing it on a postcard for all to see.
Encrypting your email will keep all but the most sophisticated hackers from intercepting and reading your private communications. Using a personal email certificate allows you to digitally sign your email so that recipients can verify that it’s really from you as well as encrypt your messages so that only the intended recipients can view it. The way typical email encryption works is that you have a public key and a private key, known as Public Key Infrastructure (PKI).
