Secure e-mail communication using digital certificates and encryption

Digital certificates form the basis of secure e-mail communication. These digital documents identify senders and recipients as the bonafide holders of their e-mail addresses. Certificates are only issued following verification of identity. Both parties communicating must be in possession of such a certificate and the issuing organisations must have confidence in one another. If these criteria are satisfied, an e-mail can be sent in an encrypted form (see diagram). The code required to decrypt an e-mail is available only to the clearly specified recipient.
