DomainKeys Identified Mail, or DKIM, is a method for checking the legitimacy of an email message using a digital signature. When DKIM is enabled for a particular domain name, a public encryption key is published to the global DNS system and a private one is kept on the mail server. If a new email message is sent, a signature is generated using the private key and when the email message is received, that signature is verified by the incoming server using the public key. Thus, the recipient can easily discern if the email is legitimate or if the sender’s address has been spoofed. A mismatch will appear if the content of the email message has been changed on its way 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 email validation system will increase your email security, since you can validate the authenticity of the important email messages that you receive and your associates can do the exact same thing with the emails that you send them. Depending on the particular email provider’s policies, a message that fails the test may be removed or may reach the receiver’s mailbox with a warning notification.
