Email Authentication Summit

former FTC Conference Center 601 New Jersey Avenue, NW, Washington, DC 20001 | Directions & Nearby

Event Description

The FTC and the Department of Commerce's National Institute of Standards and Technology hosted a summit that brought together technologists and other interested parties to discuss the market's development, testing, evaluation, and deployment of domain-level authentication systems. The Summit followed the Commission's June 15, 2004 National Do Not Email Registry Report to Congress. In that Report, the Commission identified domain-level authentication as a promising technological development that would enable Internet Service Providers (''ISPs'') and other domain holders to better filter spam, and that would provide law enforcement with a potent tool for locating and identifying spammers.
