From: The IESG <email@example.com> To: IETF-Announce <firstname.lastname@example.org> Cc: Internet Architecture Board <email@example.com>, RFC Editor <firstname.lastname@example.org> Subject: Protocol Action: 'Message Header Field for Indicating Message Authentication Status' to Proposed Standard The IESG has approved the following document: - 'Message Header Field for Indicating Message Authentication Status ' <draft-kucherawy-sender-auth-header-20.txt> as a Proposed Standard This document has been reviewed in the IETF but is not the product of an IETF Working Group. The IESG contact person is Lisa Dusseault. A URL of this Internet-Draft is: http://www.ietf.org/internet-drafts/draft-kucherawy-sender-auth-header-20.txt
Technical Summary This draft introduces a header that passes sender validation information in a message to the recipient. It can be used with several validation approaches including DKIM. Working Group Summary This is an individual document, although discussion has taken place on email@example.com. There is opposition to the proposal from Doug Otis. He seems to have an unusual and hard-to-understand model of how email validation should work, so I believe there is rough consensus anyway. Document Quality This header is already implemented. I asked Barry Leiba and Jim Fenton to review the proposal when asked to publish it. Personnel Lisa Dusseault reviewed this for the IESG.
