recently someone asked me whether it would have any added value if the
DKIM public key, which is stored in DNS, would be 'certified' in some
(yet to be determined) way by a 3rd party like VeriSign, Thawte etc.? My
first reaction was, that it made no sense, but I'm no longer sure
whether that's the only possible answer. For example: does it have an
added value if a VeriSign Trust Seal certificate would be used for the
DKIM public key?
Maybe I should send this question to the domainrep list, as 'certifying'
a DKIM public key may have more to do with domain reputation and
accreditation then with DKIM itself.
Anyway, any thoughts on this topic appreciated.
