Re: product to send confidnetial informatiion to clients

PGP Desktop is definitely the way to go if this is a real commercial
environment. One of its main strong suits, on top of being technically
sound, is that it's transparent to the user.

Situation: User A with PGP sends User B an encrypted email.

Scenario 1: User B also has PGP; they receive the email normally (and securely).
Scenario 2: User B does not have PGP and instead receives an
unencrypted email telling them they have a secure message waiting for
them at $URL which requires their authentication to view.

hi all

I am looking for a product/application which will manage all the sending of
information to 3 parties working with the bank.

I dont mean to implement a VPN or ssh. Im looking for a app which will manage
sending information in a secure way.

someone knows about such an application?

Hi Juan,

PGP Desktop  is one the usual commercial solutions to this problem:
http://www.pgp.com/products/packages/desktop_corporate/index.html

The information creator would encrypt the information and include the
public keys of the 3 parties, and send it out.  That way, only those 3
parties can view it.  All 3 parties will need the same software.

You can do the same things for free with free GPG, but you'll
generally need more technical users to pull it off without a lot of
angst.  Public key crypto is hard enough for normal folks to wrap
their head around that there is value in making it a bit
easier/prettier in this case, at least in my experience.

Best Regards,
