Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


On the rule-based email exchange system called RMX, similar to general mailing lists, anyone can send emails by sending to an address unique to RMX. However, there is a security problem that we cannot prevent spam emails and accidentally sending email that may cause a leak of information. In this paper, to resolve this problem, we propose to introduce the authorization mechanism that authorizes a sender to send emails based on authorization rules that the users set in advance into RMX. This mechanism enables sending limitation, and if a sender tries to send to unauthorized recipients, a warning message is returned to the sender.
