DMARC Analyzer doesn’t store the body of Forensic reports by default. It is possible that privacy sensitive data is included in these emails. For analysis it will be harder as you don’t know which email cause your DMARC to fail.
To fix this problem we introduced a new method to view the Forensic reports. When a PGP key is added to your account we will start encrypting the complete Forensic report with this key. In your Forensic overview you can download the encrypted report and decrypt with your private key and password.
Create a PGP key
A PGP key consists of a private and public key combination. DMARC Analyzer doesn’t provide functionality to generate a key but there are tools available to generate one. You can generate a key for example at https://pgpkeygen.com/.
- Your name: Your full name
- Your email address: Your email address
- Comments: This can be left empty
- Algorithm: RSA
- Key size: 4096
- Expires: Never
- Passphrase: A strong passphrase
- Click the ‘Generate key’ button and download your public and private key.
Adding your key to DMARC Analyzer
Go to the ‘Profile’ page and click on the ‘Public Keys’ button on the top right button bar.
On this page you can add your created public PGP key. Open your downloaded public key with a text editor and copy the contents. Paste the contents in the text area on the page and click the save button.
DMARC Analyzer will now start encrypting your Forensic reports with this key.
Note: Encryption will only be applied to newly received Forensic reports.
Decrypting your Forensic reports
Encrypted email messages can be found in your Forensic overview. Click on the “View” button of the email headers. When an encrypted message is available the full message can be copied from the text area. To decrypt your message use your generated private key and passphrase.
DMARC Analyzer doesn’t provide PGP decryption. On the internet several (online) tools are available to decrypt your messages. For example https://sela.io/pgp/ provides decryption. Type in your private key, password and encrypted message. Click the decrypt button and you should see your message.
