RFC 2015 defines a proposed Internet standard for sending PGP-encrypted email. This PGP/MIME has been incorporated into several MUAs such as Mutt and (with the AEGYPTEN project) KMail. However, a lot of email clients still don't support it. pgp-mime-handler can decrypt/verify such messages via a pipe, so it can be used as an email filter in many programs or scripts.
CAKE (Key Addressed Crypto Encapsulation) is a bunch of Python and C++ for implementing the CAKE protocol. The CAKE protocol is a protocol in which all messages have source and destination addresses that are public keys. This is in the same way that IP packets have a source and destination address that is an IP address.
GPGlist is a Perl script to implement gpg encrypted alias lists in a mail server such as Sendmail or Postfix. It uses one XML config file to store information about lists. It backs up messages if an error occours, and sends out error messages to the sender of the mail. You can decide whether or not a list only accepts encrypted messages.
DJIGZO Email Encryption Gateway is a centrally managed email server that encrypts and decrypts incoming and outgoing email at the gateway level. Djigzo currently supports two encryption standards: S/MIME and PDF encryption. The built-in Data Leak Prevention (DLP) module can be used to prevent certain information from leaving the organization via email. DLP can be configured to filter on credit card numbers, bank account numbers, excessive amounts of email addresses or other personal information in one email message, and more. DJIGZO can be installed on most Linux and Unix based systems. Installation packages are available for Ubuntu, Debian, Red Hat and CentOS. A ready to run virtual appliance for VMware and Hyper-V is available. An add-on for BlackBerry is available.
Xplico is an IP traffic decoder that extracts data from an Internet traffic capture. From a pcap file, it can extracts each email (POP, IMAP, and SMTP protocols), all HTTP content, VoIP calls (SIP, RTP, H323, MEGACO, MGCP), IRC, MSN, and so on. It isn't a packet sniffer or a network protocol analyzer, but rather an IP/Internet traffic decoder or network forensic analysis tool (NFAT).
Z1 SecureMail Gateway is a central, server-based software solution that provides encryption and digital signatures (PGP and S/MIME) for the entire email traffic of an organization. It works with organizational certificates and certificates for individual users, groups, or organizational units. It provides its services transparently to end users. Z1 SecureMail Gateway automatically finds certificates of external users or companies via Internet. Secure email traffic to customers, suppliers, and partners is easily established. Evaluation packages for Debian and Solaris are available for download.
Email Security through Procmail (the Procmail Sanitizer) provides methods to sanitize email, removing obvious exploit attempts and disabling the channels through which exploits are delivered. Facilities for detecting and blocking Trojan Horse exploits and worms are also provided.
MailStripper Pro is a mail scanner that aims to remove spam and viruses from incoming mail. It recognises and decodes many obfuscation techniques used by spammers and uses several different mechanisms to recognise spam which are immune to Bayes poisoning, and has achieved real-world success of over 99.8%. It is MTA-independent and does not implant itself into your mail server. Instead, it functions as a proxy, allowing the MTA to reside on a different server.
