+ - Stopping Spam by Authenticating all Email

Submitted by Michael G. Kaplan
Michael G. Kaplan (1517611) writes "Preventing spam would be much easier if all email were authenticated – currently an impossibility because at a minimum this would require the perfect ongoing manual participation of every domain administrator in the world. Universal email authentication will only become a reality by obviating the need for this manual participation. This might be possible via a method that allows the email sending computers to autonomously apply authenticating digital signatures."
