Abstract

Over the last years email has become a communication medium used by almost everyone. However, the protocols involved in sending or receiving email messages don’t account for security measures like message confidentiality and integrity. In this thesis, we propose Security Enabled Electronic Post, a system of protocols for a secure asynchronous messaging system. This system reminds of email and functions for the user in the same way, but unlike email, security measures are required for proper functioning. We designed protocols that provide the general communication method and a proof of concept application that demonstrates the possibilities. The protocols provide secure communication and secure message handling, focussing on confidentiality and data integrity. In SEEPost, the servers are given as little knowledge as possible about the contents of the messages they transmit. The proof of concept application implements the SEEPost protocols in a transparent way, only exposing the security layers in case any error occurs.
