Interoperability Testing Event for DMARC Email Anti-Spoofing Specification

Michael Hammer

At the end of January, the DMARC (Domain-based Message Authentication, Reporting & Conformance) specification was publicly announced and resulted in widespread media coverage, blog posts and discussion. Since that time various individuals and organizations have been working on writing code for DMARC validators and report parsers. The dmarc-discuss list has been fairly active as various questions and issues have been raised and clarified. Now it is time to see how well the various implementations play together in live testing.

The DMARC Interopability event has been announced and will take place July 19th and 20th in Menlo Park California. As with previous interoperability events for other standards such as DKIM, the event for DMARC will help implementers ensure that their software is free of most basic interoperability barriers.

If you are writing and implementing DMARC code this is an event you shouldn't miss. If you do not have running code this is not an event for you.

In case you have not participated in an interoperability event before, it is about doing, not listening.  You test your code against the code being fielded by others.  In the same room.  Work with them to make your code and theirs sing the same protocol spec.
