Isn't it wonderful ?


Here is a very interesting article from silicon.com ...

This article's about the preliminary approval from the Internet Engineering Task Force to the DKIM (DomainKeys Identified Mail) project.

Names such as Cisco, Yahoo, PGP Corporation and Sendmail are behind it, and this new system should be a good step in illegitimate spam fighting. Not perfect, but still a step.

The main principle is that mailers would include a digital signature (using public key cryptography supposedly being unforgeable) to prove they are the true senders.

Imho, this system is far from being perfect, but it still is one good step...
