Cisco and Yahoo submit DomainKeys Identified Mail or DKIM to IETF

Well Cisco and Yahoo combined their message signing technologies into DomainKeys Identified Mail or DKIM. This is basically Cisco Identified Internet Mail and Yahoo DomainKeys getting submitted jointly to the IETF. It will most likely get experimental status like SenderID did.
My personal belief is that you are going to see SPF and DKIM become more widely deployed within the next year. Yahoo and Google both support DomainKeys and there are extensions to do DomainKeys and Identified Internet Mail available now.
Yet another Anti-Spam Solution (YAAS) to keep track of.

The correct link for information on DKIM is http://dkim.org ; the link given is for Cisco's Identified Internet Mail, one of the specifications that formed the basis for DKIM.
