Protection of email or ICQ communication
To enable email and ICQ users to share information in a form that would be inaccessible to strangers, there are email protection services. One of the services supervises over data transmission by email, and the other one analyzes the incoming traffic from instant messaging clients.
The traffic analysis using PRIVACY makes it possible to use any email clients supporting MIME, S/MIME and PGP/MIME protocols as well as instant messaging clients under the OSCAR protocol. PRIVACY users just need to set up their account within the PRIVACY interface, provide for the rules regulating outgoing messages and turn on the protection option in the PRIVACY menu. Then PRIVACY will act as a proxy server processing any incoming and outgoing messages. To be sure, this happens only when SHIPKA is plugged in the computer and a valid PIN code is entered, otherwise encrypted incoming messages remain encrypted, it is impossible to verify signatures of incoming messages, and outgoing messages cannot be encrypted or signed using your EDS when you are away. At the same time, there is a chance you have forgotten to plug SHIPKA in. If this is the case, PRIVACY will remind you about this.
Setting up your account with Privacy is a very easy process due to the well-thought-out interface and hints. As for ICQ settings, they add up to entering your UIN (ICQ number).
Using message processing rules and policies to be set up in PRIVACY, you can manage filtering parameters as well as security level for each outgoing message.
