BITS - Email Authentication Policy and Deployment Strategy for Financial Services Firms

BITS has released “The BITS Email Authentication Policy and Deployment Strategy for Financial Services Firms”, which explains how financial institutions can leverage several protocols and tools to detect and reduce the number of spoofed email messages that reach consumers and business partners.
 
This paper was developed by the BITS Security Working Group and leverages previous papers published in 2007 and 2009, and collaboration among technology leaders in financial institutions, Internet Service Providers (ISPs), Email Service Providers (ESPs), and others to reduce the rampant spoofing of email addresses. The paper discusses the Sender Policy Framework (SPF), Domain Keys Identified Message (DKIM), and Domain-based Message Authentication, Reporting & Conformance (DMARC) standards. Implementation of these standards provides a foundation for building complete end-to-end email security solutions.
