Centralized email encryption with Anubis



The Anubis mail manipulation daemon lets you centralize encryption for outgoing mail.

Experts acknowledge the danger of transmitting plans, personal data, and confidential agreements in clear text across the Internet, but end users rarely heed their warnings. Users typically don’t turn to tools such as PGP, GnuPG [2], and S/ Mime by choice. CTOs can either bemoan their fate or take proactive steps: so-called PGP servers provide centralized user key management and handle the encryption and decryption processes. These services remove the need for time-consuming installation and configuration of a PGP client on every user workstation. Linux admins have a choice of free encryption programs such as GPG-Relay [3] or Kuvert [4], and there are a number of commercial applications (such as [5] and [6]), some of which are also available for Windows. But if you prefer to avoid specialized applications, your best option may be the universal mail manipulation program, GNU Anubis [1].
