Hi,

At the moment cryptographic signing and decryption of mails with imp requires
that the private key is stored on the web server.

Some years ago there was a attempt to implement S/MIME signing with
browser capabilities
for firefox (https://bugs.horde.org/ticket/2782). But the
implementation wasn't included
in IMP.

In the meantime there are projects to standardized the APIs

"Javascript Object Signing and Encryption (jose)"
https://datatracker.ietf.org/wg/jose/documents/

"Web Cryptography API"
https://www.w3.org/2012/webcrypto/

Is there anyone else that would be willing to help to fund

"S/MIME signing and decryption using browser APIs"

@horde devs how much money would be needed to implement using these APIs?
and how long would it take?

Regards


Michael
