Makaseh Identity is a recognition based tool that would prevent emails from unauthorized/unrecognized persons to be identified and alerted or removed.
Makaseh Identity is now ready for release. A first preview with a short 2 min video on youtube has been released to give an idea of the concept.
The video details the creation of the Makaseh Identity by the user. Being a recognition tool, the user creates and manages the identity. The Makaseh server simply enables the Identity creation and recognition process.
The video shows how simple it is to secure a file within the system, share with other users.

More videos and information on Makaseh are already available in youtube.com

This weekend, the “Guardians of Peace”—the cyber-attackers who brought Sony Pictures Entertainment’s network down in November and have since shared over a terabyte of the company’s internal data—made two more dumps of SPE data to file sharing sites and torrents. The second of the two, on Sunday, was the e-mail box of Sony Pictures Releasing International President Steven O’Dell. And the hackers promised a “Christmas present” soon of even more data if the company does not relent and meet their unspecified demands. - more
