I've had a brief exchange, with a few folks recently, that suggests quite a
bit of ambiguity about the DKIM-related information to be used for assessing
When you validate a DKIM signature, what information do you
(intend to) use for querying your reputation/accreditation
So I'd like to ask folks to privately send me their own views on what string
or strings are intended to be used.
I am asking for private replies only to me so that each response is
essentially free of influence from others. I will then summarize the results
and we can start enjoying a bit of discussion about them.
To be clear: Of course a site making reputation assessments can and will use
whatever they wish. So the issue is not restricting their freedom.
Rather, the question is about DKIM's precise (standardized) semantics. Note
that DKIM -base declares that the purpose of DKIM is to "permit a signing
domain to assert responsibility for a message".
So the purpose of this survey is to ask what string you believe is intended to
represent that responsibility?
