Gmail to Warn Users of Unencrypted Email

Author: Richard Adhikari

 

Quotes:

The warning “will help in cases where hackers try to perform DNS poisoning while trying to infect or phish users visiting well-established websites,”

security consultant Sorin Mustaca said.

 

Going with TLS is not necessarily the answer because “many emails would not reach their destination if the destination servers don’t support TLS,” security consultant Mustaca told the E-Commerce Times. Emails continue to be delivered because of opportunistic encryption. “Servers first try to establish a TLS connection and, if they don’t succeed, they continue communicating on unencrypted connections,” he explained.
