DomainKeys Identified Mail, or DKIM, is a method for verifying the authenticity of an email using a digital signature. When DKIM is activated for a given domain, a public cryptographic key is published to the global DNS database and a private one is stored on the email server. If a new email message is sent, a signature is generated using the private key and when the message is received, the signature is verified by the POP3/IMAP server using the public key. Thus, the receiver can easily distinguish if the email is genuine or if the sender’s email address has been spoofed. A discrepancy will appear if the content of the email message has been altered in the meantime as well, so DKIM can also be used to ensure that the sent and the received messages are identical and that nothing has been added or deleted. This authentication system will enhance your email security, since you can confirm the authenticity of the important email messages that you get and your associates can do likewise with the email messages that you send them. Depending on the particular email provider’s policies, a message that fails the test may be deleted or may show up in the receiver’s mailbox with a warning alert.
