DKIM Authentication

All Private Email accounts with Total Digital Security are protected with DKIM at no additional charge to the customer.*

What it means is less spam, phishing, and no spoofing of your good name.

Helping people gain greater control over their personal information is a core value at TDS. Private Email accounts use the best security systems the IT security industry has to offer.

What's better is the science of cybersecurity is on fire with innovation, and we will continue to bring it to bear in our everyday lives. And, the digital autonomy a Private Email domain brings is difficult to overstate.

A great example of all the above is DKIM, or DomainKeys Identified Email.

Let's go to Wikipedia for the basics of DKIM:

"DomainKeys Identified Mail (DKIM) is an email authentication method designed to detect forged sender addresses in emails, (email spoofing), a technique often used email with domian key red ampersand imagein phishing and email spam.

DKIM allows the receiver to check that an email claimed to have come from a specific domain was indeed authorized by the owner of that domain.[1]

It achieves this by affixing a digital signature, linked to a domain name, to each outgoing email message."

This is an email security standard that's engineered to assure emails weren't altered in any way during their travel between the sender's and recipient's accounts. The DKIM security system uses public-key cryptography to digitally sign each email with a private "key" as it leaves the sender's box.

DKIM authentication allows our customers to control their email system, and keep their legitimate email separated from spam and phishing campaigns.

* Total Digital Security adds DKIM to all Private Email accounts where we serve as the DNS host. If a customer acts as their own DNS server administrator, they will assume the responsibility for DKIM entries and verification.

What is Domain Spoofing?

Domain spoofing is where a cybercriminal forges your email account to carry out a range of malicious activities using your email address.

A spoofed domain can enable cyber-attackers to:

  • Instigate money wires and transfers while impersonating another known, trusted source.
  • Create and send fake invoices to you and others you interact with.
  • Use your email domain to deal online and on the Dark Web with buying and selling drugs and other illegal goods.
  • Spread Ransomware and other malware.
  • Impersonate another to steal your personal information.
