How to keep your postal mail private and secureWritten by Max Penn
Surreptious opening of most envelopes sent through mail takes little effort and only minimal skill. Instructions are readily available on Internet and in books suc as "CIA Flaps and Seals Manual" (Paladin Press).
While your mail is in hands of postal service it is relatively secure from outside snooping but readily available to postal employees and alphabet soup of government agencies that may, for whatever reason, take an interest in your private correspondence. If your mail is delivered to your home, perhaps to a box at end of your driveway, someone can easily remove your mail before you do, unless you are waiting when postment delivers it.
LET ME ASK YOU THIS... If a private investigation or neighborhood snoop removed private letters from your mailbox, carefully opened them, recorded contents, and then resealed them and returned them to your mailbox, would you know it? If you received a letter in mail on Wednesdays instead of tuesday, would you be aware that it had been missing that day?
HOW GOVERNMENT KEEP THEIR MAIL PRIVATE When government agencies send sensitive material, they double-wrap it to prevent it's surreptitious opening. The government procedure is to place sensitive material in an envelope, seal all seams and edges with tape, and record appropriate addresses and security markings on envelope.
This envelope is then placed into a second envelope, which then has all edges and seams sealed with tape. The outer envelope is addressed, but there are no security markings recorded on it. This is effective, but outer envelope with all edges and seams sealed with tape stands out from ordinary mail.
