DomainKeys Identified Mail, or DKIM, is a system for verifying the genuineness of an email message by using an e-signature. When DKIM is activated for a particular domain, a public cryptographic key is published to the global Domain Name System and a private one is kept on the email server. If a new email is sent, a signature is issued using the private key and when the message is delivered, the signature is validated by the incoming email server using the public key. In this way, the receiver can easily know if the email message is authentic or if the sender’s email address has been forged. A discrepancy will occur if the content of the email message has been altered in the meantime as well, so DomainKeys Identified Mail can also be used to make sure that the sent and the delivered emails are identical and that nothing has been added or deleted. This authentication system will strengthen your email safety, since you can confirm the genuineness of the important email messages that you get and your partners can do likewise with the messages that you send them. Based on the particular email provider’s adopted policy, an email message that fails the examination may be erased or may end up in the recipient’s mailbox with a warning notification.
