StrikeForce Technologies, Inc Develops Challenge Response System Usable by All

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

August 15, 2003

 

StrikeForce Technologies has developed a challenge response system for email which appears to be usable by everyone.  This system would help to cut down Spam, and appears to be usable by all.  They system is still under development.  Details of how  the  system works appear below:

Here is an example of how SpamSecure works:

1. A sender sends an email to teddy@sftnj.com.
2. SpamSecure intercepts the email before it goes to
   the email server.
3. SpamSecure looks at the list of addresses for
   teddy@sftnj.com to see if the email address comes
   from an approved sender. If it does, it forwards
the
   email to the email server. Else, it sends a message
   back to the sender to authenticate the email.
4. An authentication client on the sender's PC gets
the
   message and displays a box, prompting the sender
   to enter a code (i.e. a password) for
   teddy@sftnj.com.
5. The sender enters the code, which is then sent to
   SpamSecure.
6. If the code is correct, the email is forwarded to
   the email server. Else, it is dropped or placed in
   a Spam folder.

Note:

1. For this scheme to work, an authorized sender has
   to download an authentication client and know the
   code for each email address that is protected by
   SpamSecure.

   These codes can also be stored in a file on the
   senders PC and when an authentication request is
   recieved from SpamSecure, the authentication client
   automatically sends the appropriate code without
   displaying a box and asking the user to enter the
   code.

2. Alternatively, instead of authenticating every
   email, the authentication process is used only
   for the first time the sender sends the email.
   The senders email address is then placed in a
   pre-authorized list of addresses.
