DomainKeys Identified Mail (DKIM) permits a person, role, or
organization that owns the signing domain to claim some
responsibility for a message by associating the domain with the
message.  This can be an author's organization, an operational relay,
or one of their agents.  DKIM separates the question of the identity
of the Signer of the message from the purported author of the
message.  Assertion of responsibility is validated through a
cryptographic signature and by querying the Signer's domain directly
to retrieve the appropriate public key.  Message transit from author
to recipient is through relays that typically make no substantive
change to the message content and thus preserve the DKIM signature.
