RFC 5617, "DomainKeys Identified Mail (DKIM) Author Domain Signing Practices (ADSP)", August 2009

Note: This RFC has been updated by RFC 8553

Errata ID: 2849

Section 6 says:

<section 6.5 missing>

It should say:

6.5.  Non-Compliant Messages

Both DKIM and ADSP are predicated on receiving valid RFC5322 messages as input.
Where, for example, a message under evaluation has multiple From fields, it is
unspecified from which From field the Author Domain is to be extracted.
Implementers are advised to return a result that indicates the Author Domain
could not be determined when the input message has multiple From header fields,
or even more generally if the message does not comply with RFC5322.


This is an issue brought up during the RFC4871bis effort.

An alternative to the above would be to make this a normative requirement rather than a Security Consideration.
