How to encrypt email (Gmail, Outlook iOS, OSX, Android, Webmail)

Security News - 18 min 1 sek zpět
Email was one of the earliest forms of communication on the internet, and if you’re reading this you almost undoubtedly have at least one email address. Critics today decry the eventual fall of email, but for now it’s still one of the most universal means of communicating with other people that we have. One of the biggest problems with this cornerstone of electronic communication is that it isn’t very private. By default, most email providers do not provide the means to encrypt messages or attachments. This leaves email users susceptible to hackers, snoops, and thieves.

So you want to start encrypting your email? Well, let’s start by saying that setting up email encryption yourself is not the most convenient process. You don’t need a degree in cryptography or anything, but it will take a dash of tech savvy. We’ll walk you through the process later on in this article.

Alternatively, you can use an off-the-shelf encrypted email client. Tutanota is one such secure email service, with apps for mobile and a web mail client. It even encrypts your attachments and contact lists. Tutanota is open-source, so it can be audited by third parties to ensure it’s safe. All encryption takes place in the background. While we can vouch for Tutanota, it’s worth mentioning that there are a lot of email apps out there that claim to offer end-to-end encryption, but many contain security vulnerabilities and other shortcomings. Do your research before choosing an off-the-shelf secure email app.

If you’d prefer to configure your own email encryption, keep reading.

Google: Security Keys Neutralized Employee Phishing

Security News - 18 min 1 sek zpět
Google has not had any of its 85,000+ employees successfully phished on their work-related accounts since early 2017, when it began requiring all employees to use physical Security Keys in place of passwords and one-time codes, the company told KrebsOnSecurity.

Security Keys are inexpensive USB-based devices that offer an alternative approach to two-factor authentication (2FA), which requires the user to log in to a Web site using something they know (the password) and something they have (e.g., a mobile device).

Crypto gripes, election security, and mandatory cybersec school: Uncle Sam´s cyber task force emits todo list for govt

Security News - 18 min 1 sek zpět
The US Department of Justice (DOJ) this week released the first report from its Cyber Digital Task Force – which was set up in February to advise the government on strengthening its online defenses.
The report [PDF], compiled by 34 people from six different government agencies, examines the challenges facing Uncle Sam´s agencies in enforcing the law and protecting the public from hackers. It also lays out what the government needs to do to thwart looming threats to its computer networks.

Let´s (not) Encrypt

If you´ve been following the news for the last few years it will come as no surprise that the Justice Department is not a fan of the common man having access to encryption.
The report bemoans the current state of encryption and its ability to keep the government from gathering and analyzing traffic for criminal investigations. The word ´encryption´ comes up 17 times in the report, not once in a favorable light.
In the past several years, the Department has seen the proliferation of default encryption where the only person who can access the unencrypted information is the end user, the report reads.
The advent of such widespread and increasingly sophisticated encryption technologies that prevent lawful access poses a significant impediment to the investigation of most types of criminal activity.

Quantum computing revenue to hit $15 billion in 2028 due to AI, R&D, cybersecurity

Security News - 18 min 1 sek zpět
The demand for quantum computing services will be driven by some process hungry research and development projects as well as by the emergence of several applications including advanced artificial intelligence algorithms, next-generation encryption, traffic routing and scheduling, protein synthesis, and/or the design of advanced chemicals and materials. These applications require a new processing paradigm that classical computers, bound by Moore’s law, cannot cope with. However, one should not expect quantum computers to displace their classical counterparts anytime soon.

Adobe brings AI image generation to Acrobat [Hacking News] - 43 min 8 sek zpět

Adobe Acrobat users can now generate and edit images in PDFs via text prompts with the addition of Adobe’s Firefly AI image model.

The update gives Acrobat and Reader users access to some of the same image creation and editing capabilities available in Adobe design apps such as Photoshop, without the need to switch tools. This means it’s possible to create new images from scratch using Adobe’s latest Firefly Image 3 model — which Adobe claims will enable greater realism and more control over the images produced compared to previous models — or manipulate existing content with Generative Fill and Remove Background tools.

The Firefly image feature, announced Monday, is available for Adobe Acrobat Standard and Pro customers; they will receive 250 “generative credits” to use with the Edit Image and Generate Image features each month at no additional cost through January 2025 an Adobe spokesperson said. The price after that date point has yet to be determined. 

“Adobe has done workers a service by building technologies like the generative capabilities of Adobe Firefly and working to integrate them across a range of their applications and tools,” said Matt Arcaro, IDC research director for computer vision and AI. By building Firefly into familiar apps such as Acrobat, the level of friction involved in accessing a new technology is reduced, he said. 

Adobe has also added new features to the AI Assistant for Acrobat and Reader apps announced in February

The generative AI (genAI) assistant can now summarize information from multiple documents — including PDF, Word, PowerPoint, and other file formats — at the same time. That lets users identify common trends and generate an overview summary with citations that point to the source of information, Adobe said. Users can then direct the AI assistant to format the content for a specific purpose, such as turning it into an email that can be sent to colleagues. 

The ability to query multiple documents adds value to Adobe’s “document chat” tool, said Arcaro. “This creates a significant speed up for gathering key insights, but also to put together a more comprehensive perspective across multiple similar or different documents,” he said.

The Acrobat AI assistant can also be used to summarize the transcription of a Microsoft Teams meeting or webinar, or upload a “VTT” transcript file generated in another meeting app. 

The Acrobat AI Assistant is available for free until June 28, after which it will cost an additional $4.99 each month for individual Acrobat Standard and Pro subscribers under Adobe’s “early access pricing.” This pricing is available up to Sept. 4. 

Adobe didn’t respond to a request for pricing details after this date.

How to use iCloud with Windows [Hacking News] - 3 hodiny 49 min zpět

If you have an Apple ID, you can use iCloud with Windows, which means you can access your email, videos, photos, calendars, bookmarks, files and other iCloud data from your PC – useful when you’re at your desk or traveling without an Apple device, or if you are inside Boot Camp on your Mac.

How to use iCloud with Windows

There are two ways to use iCloud with Windows: via a browser or using a dedicated application called iCloud for Windows, but there are differences between the two:

The browser

On the surface, the most straightforward approach to using iCloud with Windows systems might appear to be accessing your iCloud account from your favorite web browser.

The app

That’s great up to a point, but to unlock the power of sync across all the devices you have logged into your iCloud account, including your Windows systems, it is far better to download and install Apple’s iCloud for Windows software on your PC. The software is available for free download directly from Microsoft’s app store.

Once installed and set up, you’ll be able to use iCloud to get to all your photos, documents and bookmarks on your Windows PC to update automatically across all your Apple devices, and vice versa, which is what you get when you use iCloud for Windows

Borrowed from One Drive

The most recently published version of iCloud for Windows uses Microsoft’s Cloud Files API, (One Drive’s Files On Demand feature) which makes the solution more robust and faster.

This means new assets will swiftly sync across all your devices, “enabling users to be more productive offline on mobile devices and quickly share files on iOS,” according to Microsoft Engineering General Manager Giorgio Sardo. In part, this is because the system is smart enough to just download a “breadcrumb” (around 1k in size) of each of your files, downloading the full item on request.

How does iCloud Drive work?

If you already use iCloud Drive, you’ll be familiar with what it does. If not, then the easiest way to understand the feature is as online storage for all the files and projects you are working on. Anything you save into any folder of the iCloud Drive will sync across all your Apple ID devices (it’s very like Dropbox in this). You will also be able to access items saved to iCloud Drive on your Mac, iPhone, or iPad within this folder on your PC using File Explorer. Fully searchable, the service also lets you share your files with others.

How do I access iCloud using a browser?

At those times when it makes sense to use the browser to access your iCloud data — such as when travelling and using a borrowed machine.  It’s easy: just navigate to using your browser and log in using your Apple ID and password. 

In a neat touch, any active Reminders you might have will appear at the top of the iCloud main page when you log in. You’ll also find an icon-based set of links to take you to your  iCloud apps and services, including your iCloud Drive.

  • Mail
  • Contacts
  • Calendar
  • Photos
  • iCloud Drive
  • Notes
  • Reminders
  • Find iPhone
  • Account Settings

You’ll also find fully functional online versions of Pages, Numbers and Keynote, which you can use to create documents compatible with both Mac and PC. You may also find News Publisher, if you have enabled that app.

NB: There are a small number of useful tasks you can only achieve using iCloud via your browser, such as creating rules to help improve email management across all your systems.

Accessing iCloud using a browser is especially useful on borrowed machines, during emergencies, while visiting Internet cafes or even using a machine you don’t own that you happen to have access to. Just remember to log out.

Of course, the beauty of iCloud is its ability to sync across all your devices, but to sync from a Windows system you need to install iCloud for Windows.

How to set up iCloud for Windows

Apple’s iCloud for Windows software should install automatically once downloaded. If it does not, open File Explorer, launch iCloud Setup and restart your PC. 

Setting up the app will create iCloud Photos and iCloud Drive folders on your Windows 10 device. These will sync with your iCloud account and connected devices, and should automatically appear in File Explorer’s Quick Access menu.

What are the system requirements?

The current iteration of iCloud for Windows requires that you are running at least Windows 10 and that you re signed into your Microsoft account. You’ll also need Outlook and a web browser (Microsoft Edge, Firefox, Chrome).

If you use Windows 7 or Windows 8, you can download compatible versions of iCloud for Windows directly from the Apple website. (Some iCloud services might work differently, as detailed here.)

Once the software is installed and open, you’ll be asked to enter your Apple ID to sign into iCloud, and you’ll then need to choose which iCloud features you want to use. To do this, you’ll be shown a window in which you check or uncheck each feature:

  • iCloud Drive,
  • Photos & videos, including sharing albums of images and videos.
  • Mail, Contacts, Calendars, Tasks
  • Bookmarks.

As you enable each of these categories, iCloud for Windows will create folders for those categories in File Explorer, so you can dive in to access or add to your iCloud content. You can also share and collaborate on files held in your iCloud Drive from within File Explorer, with edits synced across your devices.

Here is how to use each of these features:

How does iCloud Photos work?

When enabled, iCloud for Windows creates an iCloud Photos folder in File Explorer. Any images of videos you add to this folder will then be synced across all the devices you own that logged into this Apple ID. You can share galleries of images using iCloud Photo Sharing.

iCloud for Windows will keep lightweight copies of your images on your PC, only downloading full-res versions on request.

When you set yourself up with iCloud for Windows you’ll see an ‘Options’ item appear beside Photos. Tap this and you’ll find the following choices:

  • iCloud Photo Library: Enable this and any images/videos saved to the iCloud Photos folder on your Windows device will be stored in iCloud. You can also change which folders are used for photo and video sync.
  • My Photo Stream: Downloads all your most recent images from your devices to your Windows system.
  • Download new photos and videos to my PC: This option appears when you enable iCloud Photo Library, and is self explanatory.
  • Keep high-efficiency originals if available: Check this if you have plenty of drive space.
  • Upload new photos and videos from my PC: Disable this if you only want to view items captured by your other iCloud devices.
  • iCloud Photo Sharing: You can view items shared with you by others.
Mail, Contacts, Calendars, Tasks and Bookmarks

The final selection of iCloud items you can access using Windows. Once you enable this all your iCloud mail (typically sent to [email protected]) will be made available in the folder pane on Outlook. You’ll also find all your other calendaring data there, and bookmarks will be made available through your browser.

Apple recently made an extension available for the Chrome browser on Windows to ensure it remains compatible with iCloud and iCloud for Windows. Once the new version is installed, users should find a new “Passwords” section in the app with an iCloud Keychain logo.

Everything else

If you have any problems with these features, please refer to Apple’s extensive Support pages that should help you resolve them. (Don’t forget, you won’t receive email if you failed to create an iCloud email address when setting up your Apple ID).

There are some iCloud services that just don’t work on Windows: Find My iPhone, Back to My Mac, Backup, Notes and Reading List. All these require deeper OS integration, though in the case of Find My iPhone you will be able to track lost devices using iCloud in your browser.

However, if you have valuable data that you want to sync between your Macs, iOS devices and Windows PC, iCloud for Windows should help – though that 5GB of storage Apple supplies remains miserly at best.

Can I use a Managed Apple ID?

Unfortunately, iCloud for Windows isn’t yet supported if you use a Managed Apple ID.
