DomainKeys Identified Mail (DKIM) is an authentication system used to verify that an e-mail has been sent by an authenticated individual or mail server. An e-signature is added to the email message’s header by using a private key. When the email message is received, a public key that is available in the global DNS database is used to check who exactly sent it and whether the content has been edited in any way. The fundamental task of DomainKeys Identified Mail is to prevent the widely spread scam and spam messages, as it makes it impossible to forge an email address. If an email message is sent from an address claiming to belong to your bank, for instance, but the signature doesn’t correspond, you will either not get the message at all, or you’ll receive it with a warning notification that most likely it is not an authentic one. It depends on email service providers what exactly will happen with an email which fails the signature examination. DomainKeys Identified Mail will also give you an additional protection layer when you communicate with your business partners, for example, since they can see that all the e-mails that you exchange are authentic and have not been meddled with on their way.
