Project 4: Cryptography

Step 6: The Email Security Strategy

After completing the CAC, your next step is to build the Secure Email Strategy for the organization. You will present this tool to your leadership.

Provide an overview of the types of public-private key pairing, and show how this provides authentication and nonrepudiation. You will also add hashing and describe how this added security benefit ensures the integrity of messaging.

Begin preparing your strategy by reviewing the following resources that will aid you in becoming well informed on encryption technologies for email:

public key infrastructure (PKI)
iOS encryption

Then start developing your strategy. Define these strong encryption technologies as general principles in secure email:

Pretty Good Policy (PGP algorithm)

GNU Privacy Guard (GPG)
public key infrastructure (PKI)
digital signature
mobile device encryption (e.g., iOS encryption and Android encryption)

In your report, also consider how the use of smart card readers tied to computer systems might be beneficial in the future enhancements to system and data access protection. This may help you define long-term solutions for your leadership.

Leadership does not know the costs and technical complexity of these email encryption strategies. To further their understanding, compare the complexities of each in relation to the security benefits, and then make a recommendation and a deployment plan.

The deliverables for this project are as follows:

Create a single report in Word document format. This report should be about 10 pages long, double-spaced, with citations in APA format. Page count does not include diagrams or tables. The report must cover the following:
network security and threat table
Common Access Card deployment strategy
email security strategy
In a Word document, share your lab experience and provide screenshots to demonstrate that you performed the lab.

Submit your deliverables to the assignment folder.
