My email box was hacked, what can I do?

If your email has been hacked, there are several steps you can take to regain control of your account.

• First, change your password and make it strong (See, How do I choose a good password?).

• Also change any security questions you have associated with this account. A good rule of thumb with security questions is to not answer them honestly, so the answers are harder to guess. If the question asks the name of your first dog, answer with your favorite song, for example.

How do I obtain my correspondent digital certificates?

In order to exchange encrypted e-mails with someone, you have to exchange your public keys. A public key is part of a Digital ID and you can exchange it with your recipient through e-mail or in person.

This will allow you to have encrypted conversations, ensuring that both your e-mails and those you receive are sent by the right person. The public key is included in a tamper proof document called digital certificate.

Do I need the digital certificate of my recipient if I want to encrypt e-mail for recipients?

If you would like to encrypt e-mail for a recipient, you will need the public key of his/her Digital ID (also called digital certificate). Digital IDs are a special type of security document that helps to validate your identity. They can be used to sign or encrypt important documents electronically. The Digital ID has two parts: a private part that only you use and a public key. The private key must be kept securely, preferably on a secure device like a smart card.

To send an encrypted email to someone, you will need to include that person's public key.

Can I use my driver’s license to drive a car in another country?

If you live in a European Community/European Economic Area member state, you can use your driver's license in other member states. If you don't live in EC/EEA member state, or if you are traveling to a non-member state, and want to drive, check with an automotive agency in that country to see if you are required to obtain an International Driving Permit (IDP). The IDP is recognized by over 150 countries, and is a special license for tourists, authorized by a UN treaty, to allow motorists to drive vehicles in international traffic without any tests or applications.
