Vanishh addresses data protection, control of mission critical emails, and freedom from the permanence of digital communication. Vanishh is a security app that provides the ability for individuals to send email messages, ensuring that the message content is private, cannot be forwarded to others, and optionally expires after viewing has occurred. Vanishh emails can prove tremendously useful for secure communication within government departments, military, and corporations in keeping data secure and out of unauthorized hands. Vanishh has been designed to complement and add to the other technologies developed within the CryptoMill data protection ecosystem, which are also globally patented.
Message control - Self-destruct, no forward, message read status, message recall (revocation)
Assurance of trusted participants - No spoofing of sender/recipient identity
Leverages existing universal transport (i.e. any email)
Emails are encrypted and can only be read by designatedrecipients. Encryption ensures it cannot be intercepted, and protects against attacks onemail servers.
Only the original sender can modify the authorized recipients, maintaining control over the dissemination of sensitive information. This is enforced via the distribution of the cryptographic key(s) required to access the email.
Threats To Data Sovereignty
The sender can be made aware of when a recipient opens the email, by recording the recipient key fetch request.
Revocation Of Sent Emails
Recipient’s access to the key can be revoked manually by the sender after the fact. This prevents lingering access to sensitive information.
The sender has assurance of the recipient’s identity, based on a pre-established out-of-band identity confirmation mechanism. This prevents spoofing of recipient identity.
The recipient has assurance of the sender’s identity, based on a preestablished out-of-band identity confirmation mechanism. This prevents spoofing of sender identity.
Self-Destruct After Recipient Opens
The recipient must obtain the key(s) to decrypt the message, which can be put on a timer to expire. After expiry, the recipient is cryptographically unable to access the email. This prevents lingering access to sensitive information.
