CipherTrust to Support Merged SPF and Caller ID Sender Authentication Protocol

Thursday 27 May 2004 10:45 CET | News

CipherTrust, will integrate the new protocol arising from the merger of anti-phishing and anti-spoofing protocols Sender Policy Framework (SPF) and Caller ID into the companys award-winning IronMail appliance.
CipherTrust was the first solution provider to introduce e-mail authentication standards into its product offering, and is continuing to work with other members of the e-mail ecosystem to define and deploy other email authentication protocols, including Yahoos DomainKeys. SPF and Caller ID are anti-spoofing tools that compare the sender domain against the client IP address. Domains publish SPF and Caller ID records to announce the IP addresses of their outbound e-mail servers. As the majority of spam today carries an illegally forged sender address, SPF and Caller ID will help SMTP receivers distinguish legitimate mail from forged spam, worms and viruses. The SPF and Caller ID merged protocol will be used as a data point in IronMails Spam Profiler correlation engine to better ensure the deliverability of legitimate e-mail while stopping spam at the gateway.
