HAD Project Logo

NIST SP 800-177 Trustworthy Email  provides  recommendations for deployment and configuration of state of the art email security technologies to detect and prevent phishing attacks and other malicious email messages. Most of these new technologies rely on publishing email infrastructure-related information in the security enhanced Domain Name System (DNSSec). The guide is written for email administrators and for those developing security policies for enterprise email infrastructures.
