Generation (India) Ltd has introduced a system for encoding
and decoding electronic file for non-suspicious and secure communication.
The products and services range is called the BlackHole range.
It uses cryptography and can convert encrypted e-mail attachments
into images of the users' choice.

whereby the sender encodes e-mail attachment into an image
of his choice and sends it to the desired recipient. At the
other end, only the desired recipient will be able to decode
the encoded image file to extract the actual file. The encoding
procedure also uses cryptography algorithms to provide additional
There is also provision for decoding the image even if the
recipient has not installed a BlackHoleMail decoding module.
The product also ensures that a third party which has the
