"DomainKeys" creates a domain-level authentication framework for email
by using public key technology and the DNS to prove the provenance and
contents of an email.

This document defines a framework for digitally signing email on a
per-domain basis.  The ultimate goal of this framework is to
unequivocally prove and protect identity while retaining the semantics
of Internet email as it is known today.

Proof and protection of email identity may assist in the global
control of "spam" and "phishing".  This memo defines a Historic Document 
for the Internet community.
