Secure Mail - End to End Public and Private Key Email Encryption

Application Name: SecureMail



Description:

SecureMail allows you and your contacts to exchange email messages securely.   You and your contacts must have SecureMail installed on your BlackBerry.  You can not send encrypted messages to contacts that you do not have a public key for.
                    
SecureMail uses BlackBerry's FIPS-validated cryptography and Security Builder Engine, RSA Public-key cryptography for key exchange and AES 256 bits for encryption.

SecureMail supports multiple accounts.  You can create different public and private keys for different email accounts with different passwords.

SecureMail is integrated with the BlackBerry Hub.  You read encrypted messages directly in the Hub but composing encrypted email you must use SecureMail.   In the future version you will be able to directly compose from the Hub.

Will the private key be backup when I do a system backup with Blackberry desktop program?

I just worried if the SD card dies, I will lost my messages.

Yes.  Both must create your public keys and send to each other before you can send encrypted email.

Re: Secure Mail - End to End Public and Private Key Email Encryption

No.  anyone you send encrypted email must have SecureMail installed on their BB10 and the app only works on BB10.
