Charter for Working Group

Deployment of secure mail is currently being slowed by the problems of
user agent migration and key distribution. In addition, problems of
forgeries and spam are increasing the importance of providing some
level of strong authentication with mail. This BOF will discuss
possibilities of using host and mail gateway level mail secrurity and
using DNS for mail security key distribution.
