Posteo the first provider to implement DANE

Created at 12.May 2014, 12:00 | Category: Medien

A small company has again outwitted the large providers. Unlike their competitors from “Email made in Germany”, Posteo is using an open standard whose implementation does not require expensive certification.

As of today, Berlin-based company Posteo is presumably the first email provider in the world to implement modern DANE technology in order to secure encrypted email transport. DNS-Based Authentication of Named Entities (DANE) eradicates various weaknesses for common SSL/TLS transport route encryption and thus increases the security of emails’ encrypted transport and website access. With that, the small provider has again got one over on the industry big boys. Posteo previously became the first German provider to present a transparency report on investigative and surveillance procedures.
