Secure Messaging on the Internet offers a comprehensive understanding of secure Internet messaging,
and brings together all the relevant and critical information needed to use OpenPGP and S/MIME-compliant
software. It explores the conceptual and technical approaches followed by the developers of both OpenPGP and
S/MIME, and gives a thorough treatment of the latest and most-effective technologies for secure messaging.
Ideal for security and network managers, as well as professional system and network administrators, this
easy-to-understand book is a complete guide to OpenPGP, S/MIME, Web-based and gateway solutions, certified
mail, delivery platforms, and instant messaging. It can be used for
self-study or to teach classes.
