Similar to instant messaging
but with built-in security measures in place, secure messaging is used in environments where eavesdropping of information cannot be allowed. Security in messaging is commonly provided using a layered approach with several fallbacks. The information in transit is encrypted
from third parties, identities are verified via digital signatures
or public and private keys
, and all stored information is done so in a secured environment with access limited to authenticated and authorized individuals.
