Abstract

Email play’s prominent role in our day-to-day life. In general, it communicates between two organisation or two people in and around the world. Now-a-days the use of email has been increased. So, the hackers/attackers are also concentrating to hack an organisation or personal data by using spam, spoofing, phishing and so on but not limited through mails. To overcome from these attacks, Researchers are already proposed various techniques to give more security to emails. The motivation behind this project is my cousin. My cousin lost around 200 euros (18000 Indian rupees) through an email scam. So, in order to provide more security for emails I have selected this topic. My research project gives more robust to email security by using DMARC and DNS data. DMARC have the capability to diminish the effect of phishing and malware attacks & Logging in domain register for managing the option of DNS setting to configure the further management and also by adding new records to the DNS. These helps to decrease the rate of risk in business.
