What is Identity-Based Encryption (IBE)?

Micro Focus uses a breakthrough approach in cryptography known as Identity-Based Encryption (IBE). IBE enables a simple identity, such as an email address, to be used as a public key to facilitate secure communication with any recipient. IBE does not require end-user certificates and thereby eliminates the usability and management problems inherent in traditional PKI-based communication solutions.

How secure are secure messages?

The secure email is encrypted with the equivalent of a 1024-bit key. It uses the breakthrough Identity-Based Encryption to ensure the privacy of your personal data without compromising ease of use. Each message is also signed by the sender to ensure authenticity of the sender and data integrity of the message. In addition, all decrypted email messages are viewed through your web browser using an SSL/TLS connection.
