Can anybody briefly summarize for me some options for
encrypting email that are secure? I know about PGP but
I need something for (my environment) with an easy to
use interface (PC-Windows) - for use by people who
really aren't very computer literate.
The following item from 11 27 95 Computerworld 58 may be
CommTouch Software, Inc. in San Mateo, Calif., announced
a secure Internet E-mail package called Pronto Secure.
It allows connected and disconnected users to send and
encrypt Internet mail. It supports many Internet security
protocols, such as Power One-Time Pad, Pretty Good Privacy,
Privacy Enhanced Mail, Secure Multipurpose Internet Mail
Extensions (S / MIME) and MIME Object Security Services.
Pronto Secure, which will ship in March, will require users
to replace their existing Internet mail systems.... Comm-
Touch plans to ship by mid-1996 a security module that is
Messaging Application Programming Interface-compliant and
works with a user's existing mail [system].
At p 66 of the same issue, there's a listing of "Recent in-
formation security product announcements." CommTouch is
listed there; its Internet address is
