How will this idea be used?
We have a requirement to send emails to trading partners but emails need to be digitally signed using the Certificate Authority Certificate. When looked into the SMTP Send Adapter configuration there is no configuration that would allow us to send digitally signed emails. This idea is to enhance the SMTP Send Adapter for adding the configurations required to send digitally signed emails. Digitally signed message can come only from the owner of the digital ID used to sign it. The digital ID provides verification of the sender's authenticity, thereby helping to prevent message tampering.
After looking into the SMTP sender adapter closely, the encryption capability is at the adapter level but not at the BPML level to override the parameter. Below gives the idea of how email encryption works - The sender encrypts the message locally on his device using the recipient’s public key. The receiver decrypts it on his device using his private key. Need the ability to override the encryption parameter at BPML level.
Also enhance the client side for future customer demands such as below - https://tools.ietf.org/id/draft-ietf-uta-mta-sts-11.html
