Description

RFC 7489 doesn't have this, which has led to multiple interpretations of the intended use for and value of DMARC.

Change History (12)

  • Summary changed from DMARCbis Should Have Clear and Concise Definition of DMARC to DMARCbis Abstract Should Have Clear and Concise Definition of DMARC

  • Summary changed from DMARCbis Abstract Should Have Clear and Concise Definition of DMARC to DMARCbis Should Have Clear and Concise Definition of DMARC

A definition would be good but the abstract isn't the right place for it.

comment:3 Changed 2 years ago by todd.herr@…

Proposed new abstract and introduction sections shared with the list.

No on-list responses.

Private suggestion to change first paragraph of Introduction to read as follows:

"The Sender Policy Framework ([@RFC7208]) and DomainKeys? Identified

Mail ([@RFC6376]) protocols provide domain-level authentication, and DMARC

builds on those protocols. Using DMARC, Domain Owners that originate email

can publish a DNS TXT record with their email authentication policies, preferred

handling for mail that fails authentication checks, and reporting about mail

purportedly originated by the Domain Owner."
