comment What certificate attributes can I check to verify if an issuer is correct?
I think I found the answer. Most of the time, you can compare the authority key identifier extension value of a certificate with the subject key identifier extension value of the intermediate/root CA it's directly connected to. They should match.

comment What is the proper terminology for the various SMTP tunnel encryption solutions?
@executifs Sorry if I was unclear. I'm referring to features like TLS_Srv:secure.domain ENCR:112 in sendmail which lets you require a minimum bit strength for a TLS session and defer the message if the other side doesn't have TLS or doesn't meet the minimum requirement. Details here: sendmail.com/sm/open_source/docs/m4/starttls.html

comment What is the proper terminology for the various SMTP tunnel encryption solutions?
@executifs That would make sense if I didn't require the use of STARTTLS when sending to some domains but I don't think it is necessarily appropriate for all use cases of option 1. For example, what if I explicitly require the use of STARTTLS when sending to bob.com?

Thanks D.W. that makes sense. I'm anticipating I'll be asking more questions in the future and want to make sure I'm clearly expressing myself.

Hi John. That's exactly what I wanted to know. Would you happen to know if your description is consistent with the CISSP terminology?
