[Abstract]

Email, since its invention, has become the most widely used communication system and SMTP is the standard for email transmission on the internet. However, SMTP lacks built-in security features, such as sender authentication, making it vulnerable to attacks, including sender spoofing. To address the threat of many attacks, several security extensions, such as SPF, DKIM, DMARC, and DANE, have been proposed; However, deploying and managing the protocols while assuring backward compatibility is challenging, thus leading to many misconfiguration and attacks. In this talk, I will overview such protocols, their deployment and management challenges, and exploit to launch DDoS attacks.
