Statuspage

DKIM is specified in RFC 6376, and it is used by a number of email service providers, including Google, Yahoo, and Microsoft. DKIM is designed to address some of the flaws in the existing email system, such as spoofing, phishing, and message tampering. It allows email senders to digitally sign their messages in a way that can be verified by email receivers. This allows receivers to verify that the message truly came from the sender, and has not been tampered with.

How to Publish DKIM record in DNS for Statuspage

  • Access your DNS administration interface.
  • A TXT record with the label selector._domainkey.yourdomainname.com should be created in your DNS system, for instance: s1._domainkey.yourdomainname.com
  • Copy the DKIM public key’s contents and paste them in the section designated for the TXT record value (Statuspage will provide the DKIM public and private key combination). Then click “Save.”
