The goal is to allow signing domains to assert responsibility for the email messages they send and thus allow message recipients to know that the message came from a trusted source. DKIM does exactly that by using a cryptographic signature to encrypt email messages. It is a must-have addition to your email security suite for obvious reasons.
Enabling DKIM for Statuspage
To enable DKIM for Statuspage follow the steps below:
After registering your domain on the portal:
Login to the portal as Administrator.
Navigate to Your page > DNS configuration.
On the DNS configuration page, you'll see several values that you need to set DNS records for. You will find your DKIM TXT and CNAME records pre-generated.
Copy the records to the clipboard.
Publishing DKIM record in DNS
Log in to your DNS management console
Create a TXT record in your DNS with the title : <selector>._domainkey.<yourdomainname.com> for example: s1._domainkey.yourdomainname.com
In the section allotted for the TXT record value, paste the copied contents of the DKIM public key (the DKIM public and private key pair will be provided by Statuspage)
After saving the DNS settings, wait for some time for the settings to propagate and then click on Revalidate all records.
Lookup and validate the published DKIM DNS record using this free DKIM record lookup tool.
