Private mail and attachments
PrivMX WebMail realizes the sending of messages and attachments from scratch, keeping in mind privacy of correspondence and web technologies.
New, secure mail protocol
PrivMX joins ideas from TLS, CONIKS, Bitcoin and proven algorithms such as AES, ECC, ECDH, SRP. Details of the PrivMX architecture.
Decentralization and control
PrivMX WebMail does not have a main server. Once you install PrivMX on your own web page, you join the network and you keep and fully control your mail.
Message content and attachments are encrypted on the sender's computer before they are sent. Only the recipient can decrypt it - on their own computer.
No PrivMX server knows the structure and content of the data that it stores and transmits. In contrast to standard email - nobody but the addressee can read your mail.
Alternative PrivMX mail uses addresses with # instead of @. This makes it easier to distinguish secure mailboxes.
Independent PKI and webs-of-trust
The module which stores and verifies public keys is part of each PrivMX server. It allows the creation of trust network.
Dealing with unsolicited mail
In addition to PKI verification, PrivMX mail uses server black-list and white-list (filtering) of domains in the client program.
Secure web forms
Each PrivMX server provides web developers with the ability to create web forms which encrypt data.
Simple installation and administration
Thanks to the use of popular web technologies PrivMX WebMail installation is simple and can be done "almost anywhere".
