UK troops adopt secure personal e-mail

Troops serving overseas used to have to rely on weekly post and a telephone call to stay in touch with friends and family.

Now troops in Afghanistan are taking their own laptop computers loaded with sophisticated encryption software to send e-mails securely back home.

The software, Private Post, developed by Identum, allows the troops to send secure e-mails without having to ask relatives to install specialist software. The system ensures that the e-mails can only be read by the intended recipient.
