The Problem With Unsafe Email?
Email is no longer just a way to send memos at work or birthday wishes to your Mom.Email
is increasingly how we do business, bank, make consumer choices, read the news, and
communicate with the world. Many Internet users assume that the information transmitted
is as secure as a letter or as private as a conversation between two people.
All electronic messages are sent through a vast system of routers and servers. Some
transmissions travel as far as the satellites that orbit the Earth. At points along this
path, email messages can be stored, digital signatures logged, and the contents of your
private conversations and business transactions can potentially be retrieved, read, and
Every time you send email, you are putting your messages, privacy, and trust into the
hands of numerous nameless, faceless individuals and organizations with no guidelines or
concern for your privacy or security.
HushMail keeps your online communications private and secure. When you sign up for a
HushMail account, you'll be able to speak to any other Hush member you choose, anywhere
in the world without fear of unauthorized access to your messages or your HushMail
How Does Hush Do It?
HushMail uses powerful encryption technology to secure email. Encryption is a
mathematical mechanism designed to protect sensitive information. Encryption works by
scrambling and encoding information so that the selected recipient(s)are the only parties
that can read the message.
HushMail provides transparent key management. HushMail is the first Web-based email
service that exchanges the electronic keys necessary to encrypt and decrypt messages for
Hush users automatically. Other services require that users manually exchange keys. With
HushMail, you won't have to find a secure phone line, exchange long strings of numbers,
or figure out how to download and upload messages from a "secure" server. Hush users are
free to exchange messages securely without the confusing, time consuming extra steps
required by other secure messaging services.
