Abstract

E-mail is a well known communication channel for collaboration in day to day business operations. In most of the Organizations, multiple users share the same computer to access individual mail client. E-mail users save the attachments received through e-mail to a file system without securing the attachments. This invites considerable security threat and access to confidential information through saved attachments. The proposed technique helps to solve the above stated problem by setting password to attachments dynamically, while saving to a file system.
