Billions of emails are sent all over the world. Many a times these emails contain sensitive information. The email system providers do provide security for the emails sent. But if the authentication is compromised then the whole Pandora of sensitive information will be out in the open. So, the paper provides a system called as the ‘Advance Cipher Technique (ACT)’ to secure the contents of the emails before it is sent over the email. The paper proposes to secure the email contents by using substitution and permutation, with the fronts provided by the email systems acting as the keys.
