So, I've been thinking pretty much the same thing after seeing all the
recent threads going on. I'm going to go out on a limb and say that
DKIM and related tech are the wrong approach.
There is an interesting quote from J.P. Rangaswami in the Sept. issue
of Linux Journal (pg 44):
"If you go to many Eastern countries, _identity_ is not about who I am,
because the I is very unusual. Identity is about _what I belong to_.
Identity is a statement of the community that I belong to. Identity is
a statementof things that I will associate with me, that empower me as
a result of belonging to something..."
There are many discussions about 'which Identity' to use in 'Sender
Authentication' schemes. I think it is time to create a new Identity
simply because it seems all the current identities have their own
Once that is done, something that allows a Sender and Receiver to
establish a relationship and trust with each other can be built. The
system I'm thinking about allows a Sender to express the desire for a
relationship and only when the Receiver _wants_ this relationship does
the trust mechanism come into play.
