TLS stands for Transport Layer Security and it is a protocol which helps protect your emails by encrypting the connection from the sender to recipient (client to server).
Encryption makes snooping on your emails much harder while they travel on their way to your recipients. Encryption in transit is important so that your emails are read only by the intended recipients and not on their way there.
TLS supports many different methods (algorithms) for exchanging keys, encrypting data, and authenticating message integrity.
Over the years, attempts have been made to subvert aspects of the communications security that TLS seeks to provide, and the protocol has been revised several times to address these security threaty.
The most secure algorithms are:
They have Perfect Forward Secrecy and Authenticated Encryption.
The mid-secure (warning) algorithms are:
They have Perfect Forward Secrecy but no Authenticated Encryption.
The dangerous algorithms are:
They have no Perfect Forward Secrecy.
Please make sure to use one of the most secure algorithms in your TLS configuration.
OnDMARC's Investigate feature enables you to see your current TLS status, and helps you detect and troubleshoot any potential issues with your email authentication from any of your email sending services.
