DomainKeys Identified Mail (DKIM) is an email validation system used to prove that an email has been sent by an authorized mail server or person. An e-signature is attached to the email’s header using a private key. When the message is received, a public key that’s available in the global Domain Name System is used to check who actually sent it and whether the content has been altered in any way. The fundamental task of DomainKeys Identified Mail is to stop the widespread spam and scam messages, as it makes it impossible to fake an email address. If a message is sent from an address claiming to belong to your bank or financial institution, for example, but the signature doesn’t match, you will either not receive the email message at all, or you will get it with a notification that most probably it’s not an authentic one. It depends on mail service providers what exactly will happen with an email message which fails the signature examination. DomainKeys Identified Mail will also offer you an extra protection layer when you communicate with your business allies, for instance, as they can see that all the messages that you send are genuine and haven’t been manipulated in the meantime.
