I am really struggling with this uni assignment and I was wondering if anyone could give me a few pointers to set me off in atleast the right directions because I really dont know where to start!

the scnario is:

The Evil Overlord of Evil Corp requires a system to allow his Trusted Lieutenants to distribute heinous plans to his Henchmen by email. The Henchmen travel around the world to carry out these plans (so you cannot assume that they have an office base).

You are to design a system or process (which should include the Evil Overlord, his
Trusted Lieutenants and the Henchmen, their computers, etc.) that;
• allows the Evil Overlord to designate Henchmen as Trusted Lieutenants;
• allows revocation of such designations; and
• allows

Trusted Lieutenants to issue and authorise the plans by email in a way that the Henchmen can verify.

The Evil Overlord has decreed that you may not use a central web server in this system,

Any help at all would be GREATLY appreciated.

That's easy. The Evil Overlord gives each trusted Lt. an email account, user name & password, that he creates. It can be anything, yahoo, gmail, it doesn't matter. He also provides private & public PGP encryption keys for each user. The keys can be revoked at any time.

No central server is needed. The encryption verifies the sender.

Don't tell the dummy who gave you that assignment that I did your homework for you. That reminds me that I did an assignment for a woman once on how to create a web server & put it on the net. She took me out for a steak dinner!
I'm starting to get hungry.

How do you know when a politician is lying? His mouth is moving.
