    Speaker: Yasoob Khalid '21

    Abstract: Email is inherently insecure. The official document which governs the SMTP (Simple Mail Transfer Protocol) mentions that in clear words. Anyone can spoof emails and naive users can easily be tricked. In only three years, revenue losses for American companies due to email-based attacks rose to $1.6 billion. I will discuss some security techniques which can be used to reduce these attacks and, in some cases, prevent them completely. We will talk about how to limit the insecurity and increase the trust in Emails. I consider myself by no means to be an expert in email security but I hope I will be able to share some interesting email-based attack vectors which you might not be aware of! The content of this talk was a result of independent research I did after being affected by privacy issues.
