Trustworthy Messaging at Microsoft

Trustworthy Messaging at Microsoft.

Microsoft has published some information about their internal need for trustworthy messaging, and how they solved it.

They needed to use email for transmitting business-sensitive data but was concerned about security and data privacy. Microsoft's internal IT group deployed a solution they called trustworthy messaging, offering both senders and recipients three levels of protection for their data. These solutions were based on applying Secure Multipurpose Internet Mail Extensions (S/MIME) digital signatures, S/MIME encryption, and/or rights management policies.

Anyways, if you are interested Microsoft has released a small slidedeck (not that useful) and a Word document (much better than the slidedeck) that gives a glimpse at their thought process on the topic.  [Dana Epp's ramblings at the Sanctuary]
