|--daemonize||If specified, the server will run in the background.|
This argument serves two purposes. First, it selects which messages
(of all those DKIMproxy sees) that should be signed. Second, it
specifies what d= value to put in the generated signatures.
You can specify multiple domains by separating them with commas. If only one domain is specified, DKIMproxy will sign ALL messages, and it will use the specified domain as the d= value of all generated signatures.
If two or more domains are specified, DKIMproxy will only sign messages which have a sender matching one of these domains. It will use the matched domain as the d= value of the generated signature.
Please note that the d= value of the generated signature can also be specified using signature options (see "SIGNATURE OPTIONS). The signature options will override the value specified here."
Therefore, if you want to sign all messages, and you are specifying a d= value as part of the signature argument, or within a sender map file or list-id map file, you can omit the domain argument.
|--group=GROUP||If specified, the daemonized process will setgid() to the specified GROUP.|
|--identity=IDENTITY||If specified, any DKIM signature created will have an i= argument containing the value specified.|
|--keyfile=FILENAME||This is a required argument. Use it to specify the filename containing the private key used in signing outgoing messages. For messages to verify, you will need to publish the corresponding public key in DNS, using the selector name specified by --selector, under the domain(s) specified in --domain.|
|--listid_map=FILENAME||If specified, the named file provides signature parameters depending on the List-Id header found in the message. Use this if your mail server sends out mailing list messages and you want to generate different signatures depending on which mailing list is sending messages. See the section below titled LIST-ID MAP FILE.|
|--method=simple|relaxed|nofws||This option specifies the canonicalization algorithm to use for signing messages. For DKIM signatures, the options are simple, relaxed, and relaxed/relaxed; the default is relaxed. For DomainKeys signatures, the options are simple and nofws; the default is nofws.|
|--pidfile=PIDFILE||Creates a PID file (a file containing the PID of the process) for the daemonized process. This makes it possible to check the status of the process, and to cleanly shut it down.|
This option specifies what to do if an error occurs during signing
of a message. If this option is specified, the message will be rejected
with an SMTP error code. This will result in the MTA sending the message
to try again later, or bounce it back to the sender (depending on the
exact error code used). If this option is not specified, the message
will be allowed to pass through without having a signature added.
The most common cause of an error when signing a message is if the signature options are improperly configured.
|--selector=SELECTOR||This is a required argument. Use it to specify the name of the key selector.|
|--sender_map=FILENAME||If specified, the named file provides signature parameters depending on what sender is found in the message. See the section below titled SENDER MAP FILE.|
This specifies what type of signature to add. Use dkim to sign with
IETF-standardized DKIM signatures. Use domainkeys to sign with
the older, but more common, Yahoo! DomainKeys signatures.
The default is dkim.
This parameter can be specified more than once to add more than one signature to the message. In addition, per-signature parameters can be specified by enclosing the comma-separated options in parenthesis after the signature type, e.g.
The syntax for specifying per-signature options is described in more detail in the section below titled SIGNATURE OPTIONS.
|--user=USER||If specified, the daemonized process will setuid() to USER after completing any necessary privileged operations, but before accepting connections.|
For example, if dkimproxy.out is started with:
dkimproxy.out --keyfile=private.key --selector=postfix \ --domain=example.org 127.0.0.1:10027 127.0.0.1:10028
the proxy will listen on port 10027 and send the signed messages to some other SMTP service on port 10028.
Parameters can be stored in a separate file instead of specifying them all on the command-line. Use the conf_file option to specify the path to the configuration file, e.g.
The format of the configuration file is one option per line: name of the option, space, then the value of the option. E.g.
# this is an example config file domain example.org,example.com keyfile private.key selector postfix signature dkim
is equivalent to
dkimproxy.out --domain=example.org,example.com --keyfile=private.key \ --selector=postfix --signature=dkim
When specifying a signature type, you may optionally specify per-signature options within parenthesis after the signature type. E.g. if you say
Then DKIMproxy will add a DKIM signature with domain example.com, using the relaxed canonicalization method, and the rsa-sha1 algorithm.
The following signature options are recognized:
key the private key file to use. You must specify the full path to the private key file. a, algorithm the algorithm to use c, method the canonicalization method to use d, domain the domain to use, default is to use whichever domain was matched (i.e. one of the domains specified in the --domain argument, or the domain found in the sender map file.)
You may also use macros for this parameter, such as $senderdomain. See the section on MACROS for more information.
i, identity the identity to use, default is to not include an i= parameter.
You may also use macros for this parameter, such as $sender. See the section on MACROS for more information.
s, selector the selector to use
When specifying signature options, specifically the domain and identity options, you may want to substitute values from the message being signed. The following macros are available:
$sender Substitutes the senders email address (as found in the Sender or From header). $senderdomain Substitutes the domain part of the senders email address.
If you want to use different signature properties depending on the sender of the message being signed, use a sender map file. This is a lookup file containing sender email addresses on the left and signature properties on the right. E.g.
# sign my mail with a EXAMPLE.COM dkim signature firstname.lastname@example.org dkim(d=example.com) # sign WIDGET.EXAMPLE mail with a default domainkeys signature widget.example domainkeys # sign EXAMPLE.ORG mail with both a domainkeys and dkim signature example.org dkim(c=relaxed,a=rsa-sha256), domainkeys(c=nofws)
Right-hand values in a sender map file is a comma-separated list of signature types. Each signature type may have a comma-separated list of parameters enclosed in parenthesis. See SIGNATURE OPTIONS for more information about the recognized parameters.
Please note that DKIMproxy tries hard to match a given message to an entry in the sender map file. If the full domain of the messages sender is not in the file, it tries each parent domain of the messages sender until a match is found. E.g. if the sender map file contains the following contents:
a.my.example dkim(key=key1) my.example dkim(key=key2)
This works very much like a sender map file, except it selects based on the List-Id header rather than the Sender or From header. You can match on the full list-id value, or just a suffix. Here is an example file:
kernel.org dkim(d=kernel.org) xorg-devel.lists.x.org dkim(d=lists.x.org) dev.spamassassin.apache.org dkim(d=apache.org)
The syntax of the right-hand values is the same as a sender map file, i.e. a comma-separated list of signatures to add to the message. For more details, see SIGNATURE OPTIONS above.
If no List-Id header is found in the message to be signed, or no entry in the map file matches the found List-Id header, then DKIMproxy will proceed as if no listid_map option was specified. That is, it will add the default signature (if a domain or signature option was specified), or leave the message as is.
