SSP - policy location compatibility with DK
I can completely agree that the policy be located where the current SSP
draft states - _policy._domainkey.<domain>. However, I would like to
propose (no surprise) that there be a "informative implementation note" or
whatever the appropriate vehicle is to say something like this:
"In the event that an SSP record can not be located at
_policy._domainkey.<domain> a verifier SHOULD look for the SSP record at
Obviously, the goal is to allow DK users to migrate to DKIM without having
to alter DNS. We have achieved at great effort cross-compatibility with key
records and SSP records and were it not for this new location issue
migrating to DKIM from DK wouldn't require any DNS manipulation at all.
Anyway, this is just something I would like discussed as it's a particular
concern of mine.
