My Email Communications Security Assessment (MECSA)


Die MECSA-Plattform dient hauptsächlich zwei Zielen. Zum einen soll sie als allgemeiner Überblick über die Sicherheits- und Datenschutzmethoden der Provider in der Versendung und im Empfang von Emails dienen.

Dabei wird ein besonderer Fokus auf die Email-Kommunikation zwischen Email-Servern (MTAs) gelegt. Dazu beurteilt die MECSA-Plattform 8 unterschiedliche Kenngrößen (StartTLS, x509 Certificate validation, SPF, DKIM, DMARC, DANE, DNSSEC) in Form verschiedener Email-Sicherheits-Standards, die daraufhin ausgewählt wurden, dass sie die Sicherheit und den Datenschutz von MTA-zu-MTA Email-Kommunikation stärken.

Andererseits zielt MECSA darauf ab genauso ein Tool für Verbraucher wie für Systemadministratoren zu werden. Für Verbraucher und Verbraucherinnen soll es das öffentliche Bewusstsein für die Wichtigkeit von Emailsicherheit- und Datenschutz erhöhen, indem es ihnen einen Möglichkeit an die Hand gibt die Güte ihrer Email-Provider zu testen und sich dabei umfangreich über die Ergebnisse zu informieren. Für Systemadministratoren soll MECSA ein hilfreiches Werkzeug werden, um das Niveau an Sicherheit und Datenschutz ihrer Dienste zu erhöhen.
