Overview

Want to take advantage of the latest technology without being taken advantage of? In this eye-opening guide, Michael Chesbro (Privacy for Sale) shows how the average American's personal and business e-mail can be read in more than a dozen places between the time it's sent and the time it's received, how marketers and other snoops can find out which Web sites you visit (not to mention such private information as your IP address, e-mail address, geological location, and the type of computer you're using), and how the government is working toward limiting your right to use encryption. Chesbro then tells you everything you need to know about safely and anonymously surfing the Internet, setting up encrypted e-mail easily, creating an uncrackable password, understanding unbreakable encryption programs such as PGP (Pretty Good Privacy), sending e-mail through remailer services to disguise the source and securely deleting or hiding files on your home computer to safeguard your private records from seizure.

Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Michael Chesbro's The Complete Guide To E-Security covers all aspects of using the Internet and email while protecting personal privacy. Chesbro reveals how anyone's email can be accessed and read a dozen times between the time it is sent and when it is received, that through such techniques as cookies and bugs, the unscrupulous can track which websites you visit, your IP address, email address, geographic location, even the type of computer you use. Chesbro then goes on to explain everything needed to insure both safety and anonymity while surfing the Internet, how to set up encrypted email, crate uncrackable passwords, "off the shelf" unbreakable encryption programs, and sending email through remailer services to disguise the source. The Complete Guide To E-Security is essential reading for anyone seeking to protect and ensure his or her privacy on the web or in electronic communications.

    Must read...send secure e-mail, web-surf anonymously

    Mr. Chesbro discusses in detail and offers many practical solutions to internet and e-mail security. I found his book informative on exactly how e-mail messages are sent. More importantly his book has enabled me to send e-mail and surf the web by secure means without the worry of being intercepted by prying eyes. A must read for anybody who sends e-mail over the internet or desires greater internet security. His explanation on how e-mail is sent and how to implement privacy safeguards are clear, relevant and to the point. Not included is a lot of unnecessary technical detail. He details practical methods on how a citizen or even a corporation can set up private and secure e-mail using free/public internet e-mail security programs. I especially liked his tips on anonymous web-browsing and e-mail remailers. E-mail security is briefly touched on in the author¿s book ¿Privacy for Sale¿. In ¿The Complete Guide to E-security¿, Mr. Chesbro goes into much more detail on e-security when surfing the web, sending e-mail, e-communications planning, and laws pertaining to electronic communications.
