What is DKIM record?

DKIM is an email security standard designed to make sure that an email is not altered in transit between the sender and recipient server.

It uses an approach called “public-key cryptography” to verify that an email message was sent from an authorized mail server, and makes sure that the email delivered is an authentic one and no alterations were made to it in transit.

How does DKIM work?

DKIM is compatible with existing email infrastructure and works with SPF and DMARC to create multiple layers of security for domains sending emails. It uses public-key cryptography to sign an email with a private key as it is sent out from the sender server.

Recipient servers then use a public key published to a domain’s DNS to verify the source of the message and to make sure that the email was not altered in transit. Once the signature is verified with the public key by the recipient server, the email passes DKIM and is considered authentic.
