S/Mime stands for Secure/Multipurpose Internet Mail Extensions. It uses public key infrastructure (PKI) and asymmetric encryption to provide authentication and encryption of email messages. By signing your email with an S/MIME certificate, you can assure receivers that the messages you send are really from you, and they can prove that you really sent them. Furthermore, you can use S/MIME to encrypt your email communications securely, shielding them from prying eyes while in transit. When S/MIME email is deployed throughout a business or other organization, employees can be certain that messages from their colleagues are genuine, and clients and customers can trust email sent from within the organization. In an Internet overrun with phishing attacks and spam, securing your personal and business email is an important step you can and should take to avoid fraud and increase trust.
