S/MIME Services In Singapore: The Best Deals

What Are S/MIME Certificates?

S/MIME certificates are digital certificates that facilitate the transfer of secure email messages over the Internet. S/MIME stands for Secure/Multipurpose Internet Mail Extensions and you can use this protocol to encrypt email messages and digitally sign them. 

S/MIME certificates serve three major purposes. Firstly, they prevent any alteration in the message transferred from the sender to the receiver. Secondly, they verify the authenticity of the sender. Lastly, they maintain optimum privacy and data security by encrypting the messages such that there is a low chance of information leak and file theft.

How Do S/MIME Certificates Work?

S/MIME certificates work on the basis of Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) technology. PKI is a cryptographic method that uses two asymmetric keys called a public key and a private key. First, the client certificates encrypt email and file messages and digitally sign them using a public key. Likewise, the corresponding private key decrypts the encrypted message. Thus, with S/MIME certificates, only encrypted information is transferred in the channel between the sender and the receiver. However, one who possesses client certificates must keep the private key in a very secure location. A private key breach can destroy your entire secure email infrastructure.

How To Obtain S/MIME Certificates?

You can obtain S/MIME client certificates from a Certifying Authority (CA). IT Solutions can help you with this process and make your job easier. Our secure email solutions are state of the art and you can choose from a wide range of providers. We will make sure we provide you the best option according to your business needs and your budget.
