Authentication: The Trust That Drives Deliverability

Generally defined, email authentication is a multi-method approach to securing email communications. Email senders create a public record which validates that their sending domain is authorized to send email from a particular IP address or mail server. ISPs and corporate email servers use this validation, along with other metrics, to determine if they trust the sender to deliver email to the inbox.


Authentication Methods

There are currently four different methods or standards that are typically used for email authentication:

  • Sender Policy Framework (SPF)
  • Sender ID
  • DomainKeys
  • DomainKeys Identified Mail (DKIM)

Each standard authenticates using a different methodology. While a sender can authenticate using all of the standards, an ISP may choose to only verify one or more of them.
