SMTP STS: Better approach client-side

+Steve Gibson

By your description, I don't like SMTP STS either. I think a better idea would be to address the problem from the client side. What if the proposers of STS, who handle a large amount of the world's email, made public a policy to advantage encrypted connections over unencrypted ones? Our experience with the SHA2 certificate conversion shows that this can work, even if it is painful.

In the SHA2 transition, Google used Chrome warnings to bring progressively greater pressure as a publicly-stated deadline approached. For mail, Google could begin by delaying messages that must cross a non-secure hop. Or, their knowledge of their own flows would allow them to predict, and therefore present to the Gmail user, that the message will be sent without encryption. No provider "XYZ" wants to be mentioned in the warning, "Your message to steve@xyz.com will be sent without encryption because xyz.com cannot receive messages securely." Eventually, Google could even bounce messages, with "Encryption required but not available." They could permit users or corporate customers to opt in, then opt out, and eventually remove the option.

Today I came up with a gag about the "chicken nebula." I decided to look it up. There actually is a (Running) Chicken Nebula, and-- I am not making this up-- it features "Bok globules."
