SEEMail (Secure Electronic Environment Mail) is designed to facilitate the exchange of email and attachments using the internet and, in doing so, to be capable of protecting information classified as IN-CONFIDENCE, SENSITIVE or RESTRICTED. SEEMail is not to be used for information classified as CONFIDENTIAL, SECRET or TOP SECRET.
The SEEMail environment if formed by a group of participating agencies who have deployed accredited secure email gateways that sign and encrypt sensitive messages sent between those agencies using Secure Multipurpose Internet Mail Extension (S/MIME) technologies.
If SEEMail is used appropriately by participating agencies, users can be highly confident that:
(a) Email marked [SEEMAIL] and [IN-CONFIDENCE], [SENSITIVE] or [RESTRICTED] can only be read by the participating agency of the recipient.
(b) No one outside the sender’s participating agency can read the email when it is in transit; and
(c) No one outside the sender’s participating agency can alter the message;
(d) The email does in fact come from the participating agency as claimed;
(e) Email marked [SEEMAIL] and [IN-CONFIDENCE], [SENSITIVE] or [RESTRICTED] cannot be inadvertently sent to non-participating agencies;
(f) All email traffic between participating agencies is secured;
(g) All email traffic between participating agencies authenticates the sending agency.
