DomainKeys Identified Mail (DKIM) is an email validation system used to confirm that an e-mail message has been sent by an authenticated individual or mail server. An e-signature is attached to the header of the email message using a private cryptographic key. When the email is received, a public key that’s available in the global Domain Name System is used to check who actually sent it and if its content has been edited in any way. The essential task of DomainKeys Identified Mail is to hamper the widely spread spam and scam email messages, as it makes it impossible to forge an email address. If a message is sent from an address claiming to belong to your bank or financial institution, for instance, but the signature doesn’t match, you will either not get the email at all, or you’ll receive it with a notification that most likely it’s not a genuine one. It depends on email service providers what exactly will happen with an email message which fails the signature examination. DomainKeys Identified Mail will also provide you with an extra protection layer when you communicate with your business associates, for instance, since they can see that all the emails that you send are authentic and have not been manipulated on their way.
