DomainKeys Identified Mail (DKIM) is a validation system used to confirm that an email has been sent by an authorized person or email server. An electronic signature is added to the email’s header by using a private cryptographic key. When the message is received, a public key that’s available in the global DNS database is used to confirm who exactly sent it and whether its content has been modified in any way. The essential purpose of DomainKeys Identified Mail is to hamper the widespread spam and scam email messages, as it makes it impossible to fake an email address. If an email message is sent from an email address claiming to belong to your bank, for instance, but the signature doesn’t correspond, you will either not receive the email message at all, or you’ll receive it with a warning that most probably it’s not a legitimate one. It depends on mail service providers what exactly will happen with an email that fails the signature examination. DKIM will also supply you with an extra layer of security when you communicate with your business partners, for example, as they can see that all the messages that you exchange are genuine and haven’t been tampered with on their way.
