Want to send files securely across the internet?

OUCS has been approached in the past about sending files securely via the internet. This came to a head last year with requests to allow departments and faculties to use email when preparing exam papers (currently this is not allowed by the University Regulations). OUCS was asked by the Proctors to investigate this, and in particular the use of encryption technology. A small trial was carried out over Hilary and Trinity term and a report was produced. This was sent to the Proctors for their consideration at the end of the summer. We have also made this available online for you to look at. However, please note these are only recommendations for the Proctors to consider! Nevertheless, this also has wider implications for anyone seeking to use email to circulate other material of a confidential nature.
