The authentication is for the benefit of ordinary users, not technical
In your view, how should the system deal with a message that
has a broken signature? How should this problem be presented
to an ordinary user in a way that they'll understand, or at
least react safely? How will you avoid the web browser SSL
user interface disaster?
Mass should behave in exactly the same way that S/MIME should, treat a
broken signature in EXACTLY the same way that an unsigned message is
So would you say that this effort shouldn't aim to automatically eliminate
spam and phishing, but instead make it easier for users to manually
identify the < 10% of email that is legitimate?
