Technical Summary RFC 5451 defined a new header field for electronic mail messages that presents the results of a message authentication effort in a machine-readable format. In the interim, a proposal for rudimentary domain-level reputation called Vouch By Reference [RFC 5518] was published and is now beginning to see popular use. This memo updates the registry of properties in Authentication- Results: message header fields to allow relaying of the results of a Vouch By Reference query. Working Group Summary Nothing to note. This is not a WG document. Document Quality This has been implemented for some time in opendkim, an open-source package supported by the document author. The Spamhaus domain whitelist is providing market pressure for more implementations, as the authentication-results header field itself receives wider deployment. Personnel Barry Leiba is the Document Shepherd for this document. Alexey Melnikov is the Responsible Area Director.
