The Department of Defense and other federal agencies that employ the strong authentication credentials for daily use may have found an email assurance solution.
Certipath discussed its email assurance solution at Smart Card Alliance’s 11th Annual Government Conference held in Washington, D.C.
“Digitally signed emails don’t have a lot of info about the assurance level tied to that credential,” explains Jeff Barry, senior technical analyst at Certipath. “You can’t really be sure about the identity proofing that was done on that person.”
Certipath models the extended validation SSO seen on Web browsers, with high assurance messages turning the inbox green. Additionally, cloud-based validation makes Certipath a future-proof solution that is extendable to other platforms.
