As per my knowledge,for secure mail communication,sender need to have receiver’s Digital ID in his address book…
Can anyone tell me, how to import/export certificate in MS outlook as it is required by comodo for secure mail communication…I can do it in Outlook Express but not in MS outlook…
No they do not
CSE uses a single use Certs. The recipient has to have CSE installed and be registered for a cert.
How it works… receiving – Installing SecureEmail using Outlook, Outlook Express or Thunderbird:
The encrypted e-mail is received.
The recipient installs Comodo SecureEmail.
SecureEmail checks to see if the recipient has an e-mail certificate.
a. If the recipient does not have an e-mail certificate then SecureEmail will not be able to download the single-use public and private key until they sign up for a Comodo e-mail certificate.
b. If recipient already has an e-mails certificate
i. SecureEmail connect via SSL and client authentication, authenticating to the recipients e-mail address
ii. If the authentication is successful then the single-user certificate and private key are downloaded securely.
iii. The e-mail is decrypted with the private key and then encrypted (depending on SE options) for the recipient’s permanent e-mail certificate.
iv. On the next Send and Receive SecureEmail will prompt the user to send their permanent e-mail certificate to the sender so from this point forward, permanent PKI based certificates will be used for communications.
Note: If the reciever is not registered with the Comodo Cert Servers they reciever just recieves a digitally signed email.
