BSI - „Efail“-Schwachstellen: Was Sie jetzt wissen sollten

Ein Forscherteam der FH Münster, der Ruhr-Universität Bochum und der KU Leuven hat Schwachstellen in den standardisierten E-Mail-Verschlüsselungsverfahren Open Pretty Good Privacy (OpenPGP) und S/MIME entdeckt. Die beiden betroffenen Verschlüsselungstechniken sind die am häufigsten für eine Ende-zu-Ende-Verschlüsselung von E-Mails eingesetzten Verfahren. Während S/MIME bei den meisten E-Mail-Programmen bereits direkt genutzt werden kann, kommt bei OpenPGP meist ein weiteres Programm, wie GPG4Win (Windows), GPG Suite (macOS) oder ein Plug-in für das genutzte E-Mail-Progamm (z. B. Enigmail für Mozilla Thunderbird) zum Einsatz. Die genannten E-Mail-Verschlüsselungsstandards können nach Einschätzung des BSI allerdings weiterhin sicher eingesetzt werden, wenn sie korrekt implementiert und sicher konfiguriert werden. Mittelfristig ist allerdings die Anpassung der beiden Standards und deren Implementierung in den jeweiligen Anwendungen erforderlich, damit die Efail- oder vergleichbare Angriffe auf die E-Mail-Verschlüsselung mit OpenPGP und S/MIME nicht mehr möglich sind.
