So I am an intern at a local software company and I was asked to do some research into improving the current secure email system that my employer uses. They want to integrate into the current web api login system that I have created for our website.
I don't even know where to begin on this subject, firstly I don't fully understand if any current secure email providers offer any form of an embedded iframe or anything of that nature. I don't know if any current secure email providers offer integration into another login system.
Has anyone dealt with something of this nature and has anyone had to create something like this? My company wants to create a centralized place for customers to go to talk about secure matters, but they don't want me to code it all myself. I have doubts that such a system exists and can be integrated into my current system.
I am looking for links, or articles, as well as input from members of the information security community. I am only in my second year of college and security isn't my specific major in school.
