deployment discussions to begin soon
Now that the dust is beginning to settle, I think we can
start to discuss deployment considerations. I was in Tokyo
earlier this month talking to many of the major ISPs and
carriers in the country including Vodafone and NTT DoCoMo
about spam, SPF, and all that. I have been talking to many
ISPs in North America and will be talking to European ISPs
later this month.
As part of my presentation I discuss record-publication
statistics. I estimated about 750,000 domains publishing.
They include major domains such as AOL, Earthlink, Google,
eBay, and others. Now the next step is testing: we'll find
out how effective SPF Classic and Sender ID will be against
spam, phishing, fraud, and so on. The results of testing
should convince the early majority to make the necessary
commitments. I am working with MAAWG.org and Earthlink on
testing, and hope to share results in November.
Just as an anecdotal data point, the day after eBay
published their SPF record, a phish was caught by my SPF
checker. So it's working!
Further to the authentication effort I am continuing to work
in the area of reputation and accreditation. The overall
vision is outlined at the following slides:
We can probably expect announcements from Microsoft and
other industry leaders soon. I believe Hotmail may display
Sender ID status soon. Gmail already puts a Received-SPF
line in the headers.
Stay tuned for more information!
