E-Mail Authentication for Internationalized Mail updates the pre-EAI
authentication mechanisms: SPF, DKIM, and DMARC by clarifying which form
of the internationalized domain names (IDNs) to use in those protocols
and when recording results in the Authentication-Results header.
Working Group Summary:
The working group process has not had any controversy regarding this
specification as it is viewed primarily as clarifying existing practice.
Two other documents from the working group are referencing this document
for their treatment of IDNs in the context of the ARC and 7601bis update
to the Authentication-Results header syntax.
This document covers the implications for all three of the referenced
specifications. It includes a normative reference to an informative
specification (RFC7489) because of the mixture between standards
track and informative among the updated specs.
