DomainKeys Identified Mail (DKIM) is a validation system used to confirm that an e-mail has been sent by an authorized person or server. An electronic signature is added to the email’s header by using a private key. When the email is received, a public key that’s available in the global Domain Name System is used to verify who actually sent it and if its content has been edited in some way. The primary purpose of DomainKeys Identified Mail is to obstruct the widespread scam and spam messages, as it makes it impossible to fake an email address. If an email 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 message at all, or you’ll receive it with a warning alert that most likely it’s not legitimate. It depends on mail service providers what exactly will happen with an email message that fails the signature check. DomainKeys Identified Mail will also provide you with an additional safety layer when you communicate with your business allies, for example, as they can see that all the emails that you exchange are authentic and have not been meddled with on their way.
