This draft is a work item of the Domain Keys Identified Mail Working Group of the IETF.
Title : DomainKeys Identified Mail (DKIM) Service Overview

DomainKeys Identified Mail (DKIM) associates a "responsible" identity
with a message and provides a means of verifying that the association
is legitimate.[I-D.ietf-dkim-base]. DKIM defines a domain-level
authentication framework for email using public-key cryptography and
key server technology. This permits verifying the source or
intermediary for a message, as well as the contents of messages. The
ultimate goal of this framework is to permit a signing domain to
assert responsibility for a message, thus proving and protecting the
identity associated with the message and the integrity of the
messages itself, while retaining the functionality of Internet email
as it is known today. Such protection of email identity, may assist
in the global control of "spam" and "phishing". This document
provides an overview of DKIM and describes how it can fit into a
messaging service, how it relates to other IETF message signature
technologies. It also includes implementation and migration

NOTE: The mail server at ietf.org can return the document in
MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility. To use this
feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
command. To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
a MIME-compliant mail reader. Different MIME-compliant mail readers
exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
"multipart" MIME messages (i.e. documents which have been split
up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
how to manipulate these messages.
Below is the data which will enable a MIME compliant mail reader
implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version of the
